Dia Art Foundation presents a long-term exhibition of work by Mario Merz, featuring recent acquisitions Teatro cavallo (Horse Theater, 1967) and Tavola spirale (Spiral Table, 1982) alongside historical loans from collections in the United States and the Fondazione Merz in Turin.
Using recycled organic and industrial materials, the artist developed a highly imaginative iconography and recast timeless forms, such as the igloo and table, in installations that envision the interdependency of individuals, society, and the natural environment. Merz was a central figure in the Arte Povera movement that emerged in Italy in the late 1960s. This will be his first solo institutional presentation in the United States in years.
