Michelangelo Pistoletto

at Luhring Augustine Bushwick,
25 Knickerbocker Ave., Brooklyn

 

Perhaps best known for his "Quadri specchianti" (Mirror Paintings), this Arte Povera pioneer here shows his "Minus Objects," originally exhibited in his Turin studio in 1966. The often-disparate objects include a minimalist bed of iron and aluminum with a mirror where the mattress would be, and a massive, burnt-looking rosebud in mid-blossom, made from corrugated cardboard and spray paint.
