Poor Art | Arte Povera: Italian Influences, British Responses
to Sun 17 Dec 2017

The term ‘Arte Povera’ was first used in September 1967 by the critic Germano Celant to describe the work of a number of artists who engaged with unconventional, and often humble, materials. Yet despite its Italian origins, the influence of Arte Povera has been international in scope. On the fiftieth anniversary of Celant’s first show, this exhibition traces the impact of Arte Povera on a number of British artists, including Eric Bainbridge, Tony Cragg, Ceal Floyer, Anya Gallaccio, Mona Hatoum, Jefford Horrigan, Stephen Nelson, Lucy Skaer, Gary Stevens, Jo Stockham and Gavin Turk, as well as featuring works by Arte Povera artists such as Alighiero Boetti, Mario Merz and Giuseppe Penone.
