Michelangelo Pistoletto Solo Exhibit at Ravizza Brownfield Gallery


Mar 7, 2017 to May 31, 2017
10:00 AM until 06:00 AM


Ravizza Brownfield Gallery celebrate its oponing with the unveiling a solo exhibition by Italian painter, action and ob- ject artist, Michelangelo Pistoletto. The artist conceived exclusive works specifically for Ravizza Brownfield Gallery including an editioned project that pays homage to the tattoo culture of Hawaii.


Combining a triad of works spanning much of Pistoletto’s remarkable career, Ravizza Brownfield Gallery, in collaboration with Galleria Continua (Italy, China, France, Cuba), will be exhibiting Senza titolo (Metamorfosi) (1976), Love Difference (2002), and Terzo Paradiso (2003). As with most works by Pistoletto, the artwork is not complete without the viewers’ direct engagement and relationship with the work.


At the center of the gallery the site-specific installation, Senza titolo (Metamorfosi), challenges the viewer to see beyond initial appearances through the artist’s iconic use of mirrors.


Love Difference, a project Pistoletto initially conceived in 2002 to create interest in a peaceful dialogue be- tween the countries of the Mediterranean, is specifically recreated for Ravizza Brownfield Gallery to incorpo- rate the languages of the countries that represent modern-day Hawaii. 


Terzo Paradiso (Third Paradise), Pistoletto’s rearrangement of the mathematical sign for infinity, rounds out the exhibition. Represented by three contiguous circles, Pistoletto’s symbol is created as a limited-edition temporary tattoo, that will be distributed both in Hawaii and Europe. Through this work, the artist aims to cre- ate a new dialogue between the symbol/tattoo and the person bearing it, enjoining different cultures and tradi- tions with modernity, temporality and timelessness and nature and artifice.
