We invite you to join us for a visit to the Guggenheim for the,
Italian Futurism, 1909–1944: Reconstructing the Universe exhibit!
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 is organized by Vivien Greene, Curator, 19th- and Early 20th-Century Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
Our New York Italians group will meet just outside the main entrance to go to the exhibit. Please keep in mind that the museum will admit guests with "pay what you wish" policy. It is not a free or event nor is it paid by New York Italians.
Please join us following the exhibit for drinks/light meal location TBA.
Meet us at the museum and let's enjoy some Italian art with Italian conversation!
