Nove opere brings together nine arte povera works from the collection of the Kröller-Müller Museum. The exhibition includes works from Giovanni Anselmo, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Giulio Paolini, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangelo Pistoletto and Gilberto Zorio.
Arte povera, which literally translates as ‘poor art’, makes a brief but intense appearance in the years 1967-1972. In 1967, Italian art critic and curator Germano Celant (Genoa 1940-Milan 2020) stages an exhibition in Genoa entitled Arte povera, which brings together the work of artists such as Mario Merz, Jannis Kounellis, Michelangelo Pistoletto and Giulio Paolini; all of whom are critical of consumer society and the social injustices in Italy at that time.
