Art Povera, which has been called by various critics process or conceptual art, tends toward immensity, fragility, even invisibility. It is more often concerned with process than product. Dennis Oppenheim gives a farmer a pattern in which to plow a field or makes a design of concentric circles on the melting ice of a river. Like e Maria's <<Art Yard>>, the work can exist only as a concept. It can even be impossible to execute. 240 pp.
