Alighiero E Boetti (1940–1994) was one of the most important and influential Italian artists of the twentieth century. He was a key member of the Arte Povera group of young Italian artists in the late 1960s which was working in radically new ways using simple materials. This will be the first solo show by an Arte Povera artist at Tate Modern.
Boetti used industrial materials associated with Turin’s booming economy and later made works using postage stamps, biro pens, and magazine covers.
