Francesco Clemente: Inspired By India | Rubin Museum of Art

Rubin Museum of Art

September 5, 2014 – February 2, 2015
Artists: Francesco Clemente

The first-ever exhibition dedicated to the work that Clemente created while living in India— an extended period of cross-cultural exchange that has shaped the artist’s creative vocabulary over the past four decades. Since his first visits to India in the 1970s, Francesco Clemente has immersed himself in the daily experiences of the country’s local cultures and diverse artistic traditions. Rarely exhibited works from Clemente’s early practice will be displayed alongside new sculptures created especially for this exhibition, highlighting Clemente’s continuing engagement with Indian artistic traditions.
