Emily Braun to Curate Alberto Burri Exhibition at the Guggenheim

We’re excited to see that Emily Braun, Distinguished Professor, Hunter College and the Graduate Center, CUNY, will curate an exhibition on the work of Italian artist Alberto Burri at the Guggenheim this coming fall (October 9, 2015 – January 6, 2016). The exhibition highlights Burri’s process-based works, and positions the artist as a central figure in the field of post–World War II art. Beyond his Sacchi (sacks), which are well-known to American audiences, the exhibition will feature other series including his  Catrami (tars), Muffe (molds) and Combustioni plastiche (plastic combustions).

More information on the exhibition can be found on the Guggenheim website and via the New York Times.
