Di Donna has tapped Italian art historian Germano Celant, who coined the term Arte Povera, to curate this exhibition of his countryman Nuvolo. Born Giorgio Ascani (1926–2008), Nuvolo pioneered “painting” that eschewed the paintbrush, altering his cuciti a macchina canvases, for instance, by sewing machine instead. The show’s 20 works by the artist, rarely seen outside Italy, are complemented by pieces by other key Post War artists such as Alberto Burri, Lucio Fontana, and Cy Twombly.
