This unprecedented publication, produced in coordination with the exhibition “Alberto Garutti. didascalia/caption” held at the PAC – Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea of Milan, is not just a catalogue of the exhibition, but the long-awaited catalogue raisonné the artist has finally decided to publish. The texts and interviews of the curators are accompanied by the contributions of nine international critics, each discussing one key position in the over three decades of work of Alberto Garutti.
The catalogue contains installation views and the listing of the pieces in the exhibition at the PAC, the exhibition space designed by Ignazio Gardella, to whom the cover of the volume pays affectionate, Machiavellian homage. The publication also includes profiles of the works from the mid-1970s to the present, a timeline of the exhibitions, and a selected bibliography.
