Giuseppe Penone Pushes ‘Indistinct Boundaries’ at Marian Goodman Gallery

The arte povera movement emerged when 1970’s Italy was wracked by economic and political instability. Penone and other Italian artists challenged contemporary ‘commercialised’ art, in part,  by using non-traditional ‘everyday’ materials. Penone’s work has consistently explored connections between natural and cultural forms and is currently on exhibition in New York.
