Fondazione Merz

Mario Merz_long-term exhibition_Dia Beacon

From 20 November, 2020 at Dia Beacon, Beacon NY

Dia Art Foundation sets up a new permanent room of works by Mario Merz presenting the recent acquisitions of Dia and historical loans from collections in the US and from the Fondazione Merz in Turin.

Spanning the late 1950s through the mid-1980s, the exhibition revisits Merz’s key forms and motifs, distinctive use of neon, and deployment of the Fibonacci sequence—where each number equals the sum of the two that precede it—for the structure of his installations.

This will be his first solo institutional presentation in the United States in years.
