Rome celebrates Burri's Cretto di Gibellina

La ferita della bellezza: Alberto Burri e il Grande Cretto di Gibellina.

23 March-9 June. Rome's Carlo Bilotti Museum celebrates the Grande Cretto di Gibellina, the enormous lanscape installation undertaken by Italian artist Alberto Burri (1915-1995) at the ancient Sicilian city of Gibellina, destroyed by an earthquake in 1968.

The exhibition traces the evolution of Burri's work - the world's largest example of Land Art - which the artist began in 1984.

Burri's installation, which features a giant, shroud-like, cracked concrete casting, was left unfinished in 1989 due to lack of funds but was finally completed in 2015 to mark what would have been Burri's 100th birthday.

For exhibition details see Museo di Carlo Bilotti website.
