The MACRO presents ...E Prini, the largest exhibition ever held on Emilio Prini (Stresa, 1943-Rome, 2016). With over 250 works, the exhibition project, created in collaboration with the Emilio Prini Archive, was conceived according to a chronological path that covers a period of fifty years, from 1966 to 2016.

The retrospective is the result of extensive research which involved important Italian and international institutional and private collections, to reconstruct the work of one of the most complex and enigmatic artistic figures in the recent history of Italian art, whose work is still have escaped complete cataloguing.


Prini made his debut in 1967, invited by Germano Celant to take part in the Arte Povera–Im Spazio exhibition at the Galleria La Bertesca which marked the birth of the Arte Povera movement. He then participated in some of the most significant international exhibitions of the time (Op Losse Schroeven, When Attitudes Become Form, Konzeption/Conception, Information, Contemporanea) and then, from 1975, reduced his exhibition activity to a minimum.

The initial nucleus of his production is based on a limited number of ideas and works on which he will continue to intervene until his death: he often reworks and modifies them with minimal gestures, such as updating a date, changing a title, isolating a detail, or photographs or reconstructs them, thus questioning their authorship, originality and uniqueness. Even when, between 1967 and 1974, Prini's work was more prolific, most of the projects were exhibited only later (partially disappeared) and others remained hypotheses on paper (totally disappeared). Since the beginning of the 1980s, the artist has further limited his presence to exhibitions, but continues an intense activity of reflection and manipulation of his work which often takes the form of interventions on catalogues, posters and other printed matter.
