This exhibition re-creates a wall from Italian conceptual artist Alighiero Boetti’s flat in Rome. Known as Il Muro, Boetti filled the wall with a hang of objects he found inspiring. Displaying art and artefacts selected by Rinaldo Rossi - a friend, collaborator and long-time assistant of Boetti – the exhibition provides an intimate glimpse into his life through cards, unseen photographs, drawings, handwritten letters and found objects.

About

The exhibition presents a rare opportunity to view works from several important stages in the artist’s life, including many which have never before been publically exhibited. Alighiero Boetti, was born in Turin in 1940 and died in Rome in 1994, and was a key member of the Arte Povera movement and is one of the most influential Italian artists of the twentieth century. The first Arte Povera artist to be acknowledged with a solo exhibition at Tate Modern (2012), Boetti continues to have a significant impact on younger artists today.
