The Anton and Annick Herbert Collection housed in the Belgian City of Ghent represents important positions in Conceptual, Minimal Art, and Arte Povera that can be described as paradigmatic. The collection is marked by two historical cornerstones; 1968 and 1989. It is on the one hand the political events of these two years that exert their influence on this extraordinary collection and thus lend it an unmistakeably political profile. But it is above all the choice of the work that uniquely reflects these periods of European change on an intellectual and philosphical level. The artists, for whom Annick and Anton Herbert have shown and continue to show such a committed interest, have each been involved in a radical new orientation, charging their works of art with critical consciousness.

Together with the Austrian artist Heimo Zobernig a radical presentation has been devised that aims to follow the collection’s chronological sequence.

Artists: Carl Andre, Giovanni Anselmo, Art & Language, John Baldessari, Robert Barry, Marcel Broodthaers, Stanley Brouwn, Daniel Buren, Jean-Marc Bustamante, André Cadere, Hanne Darboven, Jan Dibbets, Luciano Fabro, Gilbert & George, Dan Graham, Douglas Huebler, Donald Judd, On Kawara, Mike Kelley, Martin Kippenberger, Joseph Kosuth, Sol LeWitt, Richard Long, Mario Merz, Reinhard Mucha, Bruce Nauman, Giulio Paolini, A.R. Penck, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Gerhard Richter, Thomas Schütte, Robert Smithson, Niele Toroni, Jan Vercruysse, Didier Vermeiren, Lawrence Weiner, Franz West, Ian Wilson, Heimo Zobernig.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.

INTERVIEW: ELSA EGON

Interviews | September 21, 2020

"Art represents for me a 'ligne de vie'. I have been painting since my 15 years: since then, artistic practice has accompanied all my experiences as a girl, woman, mother. My only safety net in the most difficult situations, today represents the way to seek beauty in the objects and materials we use every day. I often work starting from a material that already carries a story in it, because it has been found, extracted and reused. It may perhaps be recognized by the people who had it in their hands. Somehow, it tells a collective story, piecing together, to establish bonds, but at the same time fixing my experiences." Read more
