Angelo Mangiarotti: When Structures Take Shape
February 1, 2023 - April 23, 2023
Triennale Milano:
Viale Emilio Alemagna, 6, 20121 Milano

A maverick of material experimentation, Angelo Mangiarotti wielded a prescient understanding of the ways that shape, space, texture, and color coalesce to create exceptional pieces of functional sculpture. The late Italian architect’s artistic side often goes overlooked in favor of his focus on material culture and prefabrication techniques, which this landmark exhibition seeks to correct through an incisive look at never-before-seen sketches and models from his six-decade career. “While it’s true that Mangiarotti reinvented the eternal archetype of the post and lintel,” curator Fulvio Irace says, “it’s equally true that his work contains a creative vein of great plastic and sculptural power.”
