Andrea Büttner: The Poverty of Riches
13 November 2011 – 29 April 2012
Collezione Maramotti presents The Poverty of Riches, introducing the work of Andrea Büttner, the winner of the third Max Mara Art Prize for Women in collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery, London.
The Poverty of Riches was first exhibited in April 2011 at Whitechapel Gallery. The works will be acquired by Collezione Maramotti where they will be exhibited from 13 November 2011.
The Collezione Maramotti exhibition showcases new works of art made by Büttner after winning the Prize, inspired by encounters the artist had during her six-month residency in Italy, awarded as a result of winning the Prize. During her Italian residency, Büttner spent time with monastic groups, Giotto’s frescoes and works from the Collezione Maramotti: Alberto Burri, Enrico Castellani and Piero Manzoni.
