This event has ended.

Sperone Westwater announces Zig Zag, a group exhibition of works created between the late 1960s and early 1970s. Taking its title from a 1966 sculpture by Alighiero e Boetti, the show spotlights the activities of a generation of American and European artists whose work reflects a similar rejection of traditional aesthetics in favor of new forms and procedures. The show will include a number of key Arte Povera, Post-Minimalist and Conceptual works, many of which have not been on public view in New York for more than 30 years. All of the artists presented in Zig Zag feature prominently in the exhibition history of Sperone Westwater, where they were championed from their early days. On the eve of the gallery’s thirty-fifth anniversary, this exhibition celebrates the radical influence these artists have had on the evolution of contemporary art.
