For the first time, MADRE (the Donna Regina Museum of Contemporary Art in Naples) is paying tribute to this artist from Turin. The exhibition, organized by Achille Bonito Oliva, is arranged in a way that highlights the creative method of Alighiero Boetti. The conceptual nucleus is his modus operandi: his creation of an idea in solitude and then, later, the realization of the work with the assistance of carefully selected artisans.In this way, Boetti has succeeded in bringing the same degree of dignity to artist and creator. Mettere l'Arte al Mondo (Delivering Art to the World) portrays the attitude of this great artist, who succeeded in developing his creativeness on a social level, using interaction with others and communication of art in society at large as his method.
