Installation view of Alighiero Boetti: A Private Collection

Luxembourg & Dayan is delighted to announce Alighiero Boetti: A Private Collection, an exhibition presenting a unique single-owner collection dedicated exclusively to Alighiero Boetti’s oeuvre. Featuring over sixty works from the years 1965–1990, the collection on display offers an opportunity to follow a collector’s long and measured process of selecting and balancing individual pieces in order to unfold the philosophical questions that motivated Boetti’s prolific making for more than forty years.


The exhibition will include both rare and celebrated works from the artist’s diverse career including: Mimetico, Lampada Annuale, both 1967; Dama, 1968; Autoritratto, 1971; Lavoro Postale, 1973; Mappa, 1983-84; and Tutto, c.1987. This unique collection is also the focus of a recent essay by the late art historian Jean-Christophe Ammann, the author of the Boetti Catalogue Raisonné, which will be launching its third volume on the occasion of Alighiero Boetti: A Private Collection in collaboration with the Fondazione Alighiero e Boetti and the Archivio Alighiero Boetti.
