Beyond Environment is a project dedicated to the Italian architect Gianni Pettena who, in the first years of the Seventies, during some trips to America, realized a series of environments, a testimony to a new architectural sensibility, interacting with artists such as Allan Kaprow, Robert Smithson and Gordon Matta-Clark, and already developed in Italy with the other radical architects. Beyond Environment investigates Pettena’s artistic and architectural researches aiming at going beyond the concept of environment itself, and analizes the experimentations occurring between the Sixties and Seventies in Italy and America. The project is supported by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts and by the Woodbury University.

Free admission.
