Piero Gilardi

Piero Gilardi is a pioneer of Arte Povera and a proud advocate of an ecological-concerned undertaking in visual arts. He is a peripatetic artist who gathered information about experimental art and creators in the 1960s, promoting the work of Richard Long or Jan Dibbets, and introducing Bruce Nauman or Eva Hesse into Europe. He is also a political activist who marched with FIAT workers in the 1970s, and who founded, in the 2000s the Living Art Park, commissioning earthworks to contemporary artists such as Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster or Lara Almarcegui. For all this and for much more—his design and fashion creations, his social endeavors, etc.—Piero Gilardi is emblematic of the evolutions of art and society of the last five decades. He is an artist whose works and theoretical researches are still relevant to map what art could achieve and how art could be useful in the “real world.”

Published with Castello di Rivoli, Turin, Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven and Nottingham Contemporary.

From Conceptualism to Feminism
Lucy Lippard's Numbers Shows 1969–74


Four exhibitions of contemporary art curated by Lucy Lippard have become renowned as her ‘numbers shows’. Each took the population of the city in which it was shown as its title: 557,087 in Seattle, 955,000 in Vancouver, 2,972,453 in Buenos Aires and c.7,500 opening in Valencia, California, before touring the US and to London.

This book follows Lippard’s curatorial trajectory, analysing her transition from a writer about art to a maker of exhibitions, and tracing her growing political engagement and involvement with feminism.

Extensive photographic material is complemented by a major new essay by Cornelia Butler and interviews with Seth Siegelaub and artists Agnes Denes, Alice Aycock, Eleanor Antin and Mierle Laderman Ukeles.

The volume also includes critical responses written at the time by Peter Plagens and Griselda Pollock, and an analysis of artists initiatives in Argentina that give a context for Lippard’s emerging political consciousness by Pip Day.

This is the third publication in the Exhibitions Histories series, co-published with Afterall Books, London.
