Last leg of the travelling exhibition dedicated to Marisa Merz, which opened in the States (at The Met Breuer, New York and at Hammer Museum, Los Angeles) and then moved to Europe: after showing at the Serralves Museum in Porto and it is now at the Museum of Modern Art in Salzburg.
The exhibition features many pieces, bringing together sculptures, paintings, and installations that span five decades of Marisa Merz’s work, revealing the intimate and visionary character of her formal and aesthetic approach.
Fondazione Merz has actively contributed to developing the exhibition by lending—together with the artist herself—several works, some of which will go on display for the first time. The Fondazione has also provided fundamental documentation for the exhibition catalogue, and worked in close collaboration with the curators, to edit the most updated and complete bio-bibliography.
For this project the Fondazione Merz has received support from Lavazza, marking the beginning of a three-year partnership, which will see the leading coffee company support the Fondazione’s international activities.
