Mario Botta: Architecture 1960-2010

MUSEO DI ARTE MODERNA E CONTEMPORANEA DI TRENTO E ROVERETO

September 25, 2010-January 23, 2011

Curated by Gabriella Belli and Mario Botta

Swiss architect Mario Botta came to international attention more than forty years ago with a series of crisply executed residential projects built in and around the Ticino canton of Switzerland. At that time, Botta's employ of stark, monumental geometric forms was considered an elegant negotiation between modernism and the specificity of vernacular context, and he has more or less adhered to this approach as his studio has taken on commissions around the globe. Offering a look, in a young museum of Botta's own design, at a half century of his output, this comprehensive exhibition of original sketches, maquettes, photographs, and drawings should prove a lesson in clarity of vision attached to rigorous application of form.
