Ada Masoero and Hannah McGivern report in The Art Newspaper that a sculpture by Italian modernist Alberto Burri (d. 1995), which was dismantled in 1989, will be rebuilt in 2015 to honor the centennial of his birth. Burri’s Teatro Continuo was a gift to the city of Milan after its display in that city’s 1973 Triennale. It consisted of a cement platform topped by six steel “wings” that rotated on their axes. Other efforts to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the artist’s birth include a retrospective to be mounted at the Guggenheim New York and the publication of a catalogue raisonné.
