Pier Paolo Calzolari

b. 1943


Pier Paolo Calzolari (b. 1943) is one of the most significant Italian artists of the post-war period and one of the still active original members of the Arte Povera movement. Work of Calzolari is included in numerous museum collections and has been exhibited at Documenta, MoMA, Fondazione Prada and other prominent institutions. His work, concurrent to that of Conceptual art and Post-Minimalism, has rapidly evolved beyond the confines of a defined movement.
