Alighiero “Boetti Tutto” at Gladstone Gallery

Gladstone Gallery, in collaboration with the Fondazione Alighiero e Boetti in Rome, is pleased to present Alighiero Boetti’s Tutto works. Following previous exhibits of his Arazzi, colorful grids of letters that spell out phrases, and Mappa, large world maps with countries colored with corresponding flags, Tutto is the artist’s final series of embroidered works that continued until his death in 1994.

 

Between 1971 and 1979, Boetti travelled extensively to Afghanistan to work with Afghan artisans in Kabul on a series of projects, producing numerous embroideries that would become some of his most iconic works. The process of working with local craftspeople allowed Boetti to address several principal issues within his practice: collaboration, material, and time.
