Michelangelo Pistoletto: Oltre Lo Specchio

Pistoletto emerged as one of Italy’s most original post-war artists, especially as part of the ‘Poor Art’ movement. His style has continuosly evolved over the years. In this solo show, his second in Beijing since 2008, his ‘mirror paintings’ have continued to intrigue the artist, especially in combination with geometric space.
