Beverly Pepper Ara Pacis

03/12/2014 - 15/03/2015
Museo dell'Ara Pacis,
Perimeter area of the Ara Pacis Museum

From December 3, 2014 until March 15, 2015, the Ara Pacis Museum will host the exhibition "Beverly Pepper all’Ara Pacis"

Thanks to sculptor Beverly Pepper (1922), for the first time the perimeter area of the Ara Pacis Museum is offered as a stage for a major exhibition of sculptures. The artist has devoted years to public sculpture and environmental art, and after art installations in great urban spaces such as the Forte Belvedere in Florence, the Palais Royal in Paris
and Central Park and Park Avenue in New York, has decided to return to Rome.

The four monumental artworks, between 4 and 5 meters tall and made of cor-ten steel, represent moments of reflection for visitors who will have the opportunity to capture perspectives, volume, depth, and, last but not least, light, in a fabulous blend of the glorious past of architectural styles and the present of contemporary sculpture.

Inside the Ara Pacis Museum, steel tabletop sculptures with stone bases will be showcased, all part of the Curvae in Curvae series, exhibited at the Marlborough Gallery in New York and in London.

The return of Beverly Pepper to Rome is a tribute to the city that welcomed her since the early Fifties and still is the scene of her art.

During the whole exhibition the public will have the opportunity, by reservation, to participate in a guided tour of the exhibition.
