Italian Futurism, 1909–1944: Reconstructing the Universe

February 21–September 1, 2014

The first comprehensive overview of Italian Futurism to be presented in the United States, this multidisciplinary exhibition examines the historical sweep of the movement from its inception with F. T. Marinetti’s Futurist manifesto in 1909 through its demise at the end of World War II. Presenting over 300 works executed between 1909 and 1944, the chronological exhibition encompasses not only painting and sculpture, but also architecture, design, ceramics, fashion, film, photography, advertising, free-form poetry, publications, music, theater, and performance. 

To convey the myriad artistic languages employed by the Futurists as they evolved over a 35-year period, the exhibition integrates multiple disciplines in each section. Italian Futurism, 1909–1944 is organized by Vivien Greene, Senior Curator, 19th- and Early 20th-Century Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. In addition, a distinguished international advisory committee has been assembled to provide expertise and guidance.


The Wright opened for lunch at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on December 11th 2009. Their mission is to provide premier food and service in an upscale environment within the world famous museum for both visitors and neighbors. Since the launch, The Wright has received the 2010 James Beard Award for Best Restaurant Design as well as received 20+ rating in the 2011 Zagat' Survey.

    Great tour of some interesting and purportedly rarely seen art given by a passionate docent held my attention through the event. The lunch spot was particularly convenient to the museum and the food was great. And of course we had good company.
