In this daylong program, curators and scholars pay homage to artist Marisa Merz’s life and legacy and discuss often overlooked aspects of her practice, including:
- The relationship to reproductive labor, domesticity, and the classical
- Experimentation in material and form
- Merz’s connection (or lack thereof) to contemporaneous women artists in Italy and abroad
- Her ambiguous position amongst artists associated with Arte Povera
This program includes presentations by invited speakers as well as a series of roundtable discussions.
Offered in conjunction with the exhibition Marisa Merz
