Giuseppe Penone began his creative process in 1968 in the Garessio forest of Italy, near where he was born. He is the younger member of the Italian movement “Arte Povera.” With work that seeks to establish contact between humans and nature, his new sculptures in Madison Square Park, “Ideas of Stone (Idee di Pietra)” are balm for the surreality of living and working in one of the globes most magical but challenging cities. Penone speaks this afternoon at Ace Hotel New York — if you can’t catch it, you can see the installation through February, 2014. Learn more about him at Madison Square Art Conservancy.
