October 2010-Spiral Q Collaborates with Michelangelo Pistoletto and the PMA


In 1967, the artist Michelangelo Pistoletto rolled a ball of pressed newspapers through the streets of Turin, Italy. Bringing this artistic vision to life in a city’s streets was truly groundbreaking 43 years ago. Pistoletto was one of the founders of the Arte Povera Movement, which sprung from the idea of making revolutionary art that was completely free of conventional practice. Pistoletto is also widely considered to be a major contributor to the minimalist, conceptionalist and pop-art movements. When the Philadelphia Museum of Art (PMA) decided to kick-off this major retrospective of the artist’s works with a reenactment of his 1967 Turin walk, who better to invite to fabricate the famous ball and help lead the walk through Philadelphia’s streets and other public places than Spiral Q? Join us on Saturday at 1:30pm at the PMA’s West Entrance when Pistoletto and Spiral Q depart to reenact this historic event. FREE and open to the public. Rain or shine.
