Frick to Present Works in Porcelain by Giuseppe Penone
March 17 through August 28, 2022
In the spring and summer, The Frick Collection in Manhattan will present a one-room installation by Italian artist Giuseppe Penone at the museum’s temporary home, Frick Madison. Displayed in the broader context of the museum’s decorative arts and Old Master paintings and sculpture, this unprecedented exhibition by the recognized Arte Povera artists is the first to feature his work in the medium of porcelain.
Consisting of 11 disks created during a 2013 collaboration with Sevres Porcelain Manufactory in France, works never before shown publicly, this project invites a dialogue with the Frick’s rich holdings in the medium. Penone’s series of disks will be shown on the third floor in concert with a nearby gallery featuring 18th C. porcelains by several renowned manufactories.
The Frick Madison is located at 945 Madison Avenue in New York. To learn more, visit frick.org.
