Galerie Micheline Szwajcer is offering a rare opportunity to take in an exhibition of the late artist Luciano Fabro (Turin 1936 – Milan 2007). Although the works on view date back to the 1960’s, the Arte Povera practitioner restaged this series of works in 2001, which is the basis for the current exhibition.

Working with Archivio Luciano and Carla Fabro, Galerie Micheline Szwajcer is showing the seminal 1963 piece “Tubo da mettrere tra i fiori”, which the artist intended to “set out the syncretism between art and nature”. Along with the plant-based sculpture, three steel-rod works, all originating from the 1960’s, are will be on view at the Brussels gallery until 4 June.
