Italian Futurism is the subject of a great multidisciplinary retrospective due to open on February 21st at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.
A chronological exhibition including more than 360 works, some of which have never been seen outside Italy, reconstructs the stages in the movement, from publication of Filippo Tommaso Marinetti’s Futurist manifesto to the demise of the Futurist avant-garde after the second world war.
Organised by the museum’s senior curator Vivien Greene, the exhibition was put together by a team of international academics from different disciplines with the intention of presenting all aspects of the movement to the American public: not just painting and sculpture but architecture, design, fashion, film, photography and poetry.
