"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.
