April 25, 2020
Q&A with Tenley Bick, 2019–20 Scholar-in-Residence at Magazzino Italian Art; Assistant Professor of Global Contemporary Art at Florida State University and Nancy Olnick, Co-founder of Magazzino Italian Art.
The Q&A followed the release of the new film by Domenico Palma, Michelangelo Pistoletto: Walking Sculpture, to commemorate the performance by Michelangelo Pistoletto down the streets of Cold Spring, NY, which took place on November 4, 2017.
It took place on Saturday, April 25, 2020 on Instagram Live.
"The performance's main focus is not about the individual conception of it by the artist, but about the fusion and involvement between the people in the artistic world and those you may encounter on the street, who are part of the common and daily life. With these words, Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto addressed one of the main tenets of his recurring "Walking Sculpture" performance, the latest of which was organized by Magazzino Italian Art on November 4, 2017, down the streets of Cold Spring, New York.
