I have been to New York last week with my husband for a short trip. Being an artists who lives in an island like Sardinia, it is sometimes necessary to take a plane and visit a big city to fill up the mind with new creative stimuli to take back home.

It has been an incredible and very intense trip, also because I have travelled alone with my husband for the first time after twenty years, without my children. A weird sensation, almost bewilderment, but after a while I was able to focus at the 100% on the reason of my trip: to immerse myself in modern and contemporary art.

At the MoMa I went to an exhibition of one of my favourite artists, Louise Burgeois, you must visit it! And finally at The Neue Galerie I have also seen  in great detail one of the greatest masterpieces of the 1900thThe woman in Gold, a Portrait of Adele Bloch Bauer. The sensations I felt while calmly observing these artworks for as much time as necessary are really indescribable.

Anyways, I had been very positively surprised by the growing attention paid in New York for the Italian Arte Povera. Recently, maybe because it is the fiftieth anniversary of the creation of the movement curated by Germano Celant, initiatives on the Arte Povera are flourishing. The biggest galleries in Manhattan are launching exhibitions with artworks of Giovanni Anselmo, Alighiero Boetti, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Giulio Paolini, Pino Pascali, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Gilberto Zorio and others.
