“Walking Sculpture” Performance

Magazzino Italian Art is honored to announce renowned Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto in the latest re-enactment of his 1967 performance “Scultura da Passeggio” (Walking Sculpture).

Join us on Saturday, November 4, 2017, as the artist rolls one of his signature pieces, ‘Sfera di Giornali’ (Newspaper Sphere), down the streets of Cold Spring, New York, in a recreation of the original performance that took place in Turin, Italy, 50 years ago.

A new version of the ‘Sfera di Giornali’ will be the focal point of this upcoming performance, graciously donated by the artist to Magazzino Italian Art and becoming part of its permanent collection. This rendition of the ‘Sfera’ is composed of pages of the three American newspapers which announced the birth of Magazzino for the first time in the fall of 2016: The Highlands Current, The New York Times, and The Putnam County News & Recorder. The performance will begin at 12:30 p.m. at the Village Gazebo of Cold Spring, on the waterfront.
