Reception: Friday, October 19, 6 - 9 PM
BOSI Contemporary is pleased to announce “SOTO UNEARTHED: A 1968 Film and Selected Early Works”, an exhibition by Venezuelan kinetic artist, Jesús Rafael Soto. In 2009, BOSI Contemporary owner, Sandro Bosi, was in Europe conducting extensive research on the provenance of a Soto piece. In that process, he happened upon an extremely rare film of the artist in the Italian film archive, Cineteca Nazionale. It turned out that the film, entitled "Soto”, was produced in 1968 as a promotional piece highlighting the work for Jesus Rafael Soto’s concurrent exhibition at the former Marlborough Gallery, Italy. On October 19, 2012 from 6 to 9PM, BOSI Contemporary will present this extremely rare film as part of “SOTO UNEARTHED: A 1968 Film and Selected Early Works”. The exhibition also includes five other select works created between 1968-1971 that have not been on public display for over 40 years and that are definitive examples of the artist’s connection to sound, space, music and movement.
