Marisa Merz: The Sky is a Great Space is the first major retrospective in the United States for Italian artist Marisa Merz (born Turin, 1926), sole female protagonist of the Arte Povera movement. Encompassing five decades of work—from early experiments with nontraditional art materials to mid-career installations that balance intimacy with impressive scale, to enigmatic sculpted heads created after 1975—the exhibition explores Merz’s prodigious talent and influence.
