The archive collects the documentation relative to the works of Mario Merz for their publication in the catalogue raisonné.
To insert works in the archive the following must be sent:
- a colour photograph of the work in three copies on paper (minimum dimensions 18 x 24 cm);
- an eventual colour photograph of the work in one copy of the back if writing or signatures or labels of galleries are present; CD in high res scan of 300 dpi;
- a fact sheet of the work with title, dimensions, eventual presence of signature and/or date, indication of exhibitions it has been in, bibliography, provenance, etc.
The archive goes ahead with recording only those works that, according to the opinion and artistic and scientific criteria of the Scientific Committee, it believes most relevant to being published in the catalogue raisonné.
The archive reserves the right to ask to see the work and to postpone its decision about recording it to the first meeting of the Scientific Committee, which generally meets twice a year.
Merz Archive’s manager: Mariano Boggia
Work on the first volume of the catalogue raisonné of Mario Merz’s work – devoted to the Igloo group of works – is under way.
