This panel will consider Italian artists practicing since the 1960s, including Giovanni Anselmo, Elisabetta Benassi, Marisa Merz, Luigi Ontani, Cesare Pietroiusti, Michelangelo Pistoletto, and Emilio Prini. These artists, as Gabriele Guercio indicates in his book The Great Subtraction, use strategies of subtraction that may refer to the method through which the work is made or to its presence in the world. Subtraction involves dissociation and fissure that challenge the ways we understand and interpret works of art. Join the panelists as they explore how subtraction has pushed interpretation beyond received notions of nationality, inspiring fresh definitions of what artistic greatness may mean in a globalized world.
