Alighiero Boetti. Game Plan.
Exhibition at Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid. Dates: October 5 - February 5, 2011.
This week has been inaugurated a great exhibition to which everybody should go. The show, organized by the Museo Reina Sofía, Tate Modern and Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), brings together over one hundred pieces from different moments in his artistic activity. Alighiero Boetti’s work, strongly poetic and iconic, uses a wide range of techniques and tools – from drawing and painting to mail art or the production of handicrafts – and it conceives of the spectator as an accomplice or even a playmate.
