The Castello di Rivoli presents the first European retrospective of John McCracken
From February 22 to June 19, the Museum of Contemporary Art at the Castello di Rivoli presents the first European retrospective of American artist John McCracken (born 1934 in California).
McCracken is, along with Donald Judd, Carl Andre and Dan Flavin, one of the foremost representatives of American minimalism. His work has extended the category of minimalism to embrace entirely new concepts.
The exhibition, curated by Andrea Bellini in a close collaboration with the artist, spans McCracken's entire artistic career. It begins with his earliest paintings, from 1962-63 and shown here for the first time, continues to his first fiberglass sculptures, including some from his famous Mandala series dating from the '70s, and ends with more recent works, including two sculptures created in 2010 for this exhibit.
UniCredit partners with the Castello di Rivoli to support cultural activities that serve to enhance our contemporary artistic heritage and to promote the work of young talent.
