Italian Futurism, 1909–1944: Reconstructing the Universe

Guggenheim Museum, NY,

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. In addition, a distinguished international advisory committee has been assembled to provide expertise and guidance.

Italian Renaissance Drawings from the Robert Lehman Collection

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY,

This exhibition features masterpieces of Central and Southern Italian drawing spanning the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Among the forty-two works, Florentine drawings are especially well represented by such celebrated Renaissance masters as Leonardo da Vinci and Antonio Pollaiuolo, while among the Southern Italian examples is a rare sheet attributed to Antonello da Messina.

Explorations of the human form through figure studies and portraits, as well as expansive compositional sketches for biblical and mythological narratives, present a wide spectrum of drawing types and subjects, both sacred and secular. The exhibition examines the varying ways that drawings functioned in the Renaissance, from working tools in artists' workshops to sheets made for patrons. Representing different stages of the design process, the selection ranges from rapid preliminary sketches and detailed figural studies to highly finished compositional drawings. Several examples bear physical evidence of their use in the workshop to transfer or enlarge designs. While the role of drawings as preliminary for paintings is well known, the selection illustrates the primacy of the medium for designing a broad range of media, including sculpture and textiles.

The exhibition explores the evolving role of drawings during the Renaissance. While they played a practical role as tools in the workshop, beginning in the sixteenth century, drawings were increasingly valued by a wider public as expressions of artists' creative processes and as highly prized objects worthy of collecting. Illustrating the relationship between theory and practice, the drawings are considered in the context of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century treatises, which lend a contemporary voice to developments in technique and medium, as well as the role of drawing during the Renaissance.

Tiepolo Caricatures from the Robert Lehman Collection

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY,

While the achievements of Giovanni Battista Tiepolo (Italian, 1696-1770) and Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo (Italian, 1727-1804) as fresco painters, draftsmen, and printmakers in Italy, Germany, and Spain have been celebrated extensively, their caricatures have not garnered equal attention. This exhibition of drawings by the Tiepolos from the Robert Lehman Collection presents a cast of characters shared between father and son. Giambattista's caricature studies, produced in great quantity and pasted into albums, catalogue variations of pose and dress derived from contemporary Venetian life. Retained after his father's death, Domenico looked to Giambattista's readily convenient repertoire for inspiration as he turned to drawing in his later years. Produced at the very end of his life, Domenico's Divertimento per li regazzi (Entertainment for Children), a series of 104 drawings featuring the commedia dell'arte character Punchinello, is his crowning achievement as a draftsman. Conventions of gesture, rhetoric, costume, and performance are considered in this small selection of Tiepolo caricatures.

Drawings and Prints Selections from the Permanent Collection

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY,

The summer rotation in the Robert Johnson Wood Jr. Gallery focuses on a selection of drawings and prints from southern Europe and Mexico and covers over 450 years of art in different media.

The earliest works on view are drawings by two great artists of the Italian Renaissance: Filippino Lippi (Italian, ca. 1457-1504) and Vittore Carpaccio (Italian, 1460/66?-1525/26). They were close contemporaries and represent the two major artistic centers of fifteenth-century Italy: Florence and Venice, respectively. Filippino Lippi, the illegitimate son of the great painter Fra Filippo Lippi (Italian, ca. 1406-1469), was a brilliant muralist and easel-painter active in Florence and Rome. Filippino's virtuosity as a draftsman is especially evident in his quick expressive sketches and meditated life studies in the difficult technique of metalpoint; many of his highly inventive compositions were also recorded by engravers of his time, as seen in the present selection. Carpaccio was a prolific draftsman, unlike most Venetian Renaissance artists of his generation, and used drawings for a variety of purposes. Some of his drawings in the Museum's collection can be firmly connected to extant paintings by him, and others served as models for consultation in the workshop.

Men in Armor: El Greco and Pulzone Face to Face

The Frick Collection, NY,

From 1570 to 1576, El Greco (1541-1614) worked in Rome, where he endeavored to establish himself as a portrait painter. The artist's magnificent Vincenzo Anastagi - a full-length standing portrait representing the largest of only three examples of his work in this genre to survive from the period - offers a vital expression of his ambition and invention. To mark the 400th anniversary of El Greco's death, the Frick pairs Vincenzo Anastagi, purchased by Henry Clay Frick in 1913, with the rarely seen Portrait of Jacopo Boncompagni by the artist's Roman contemporary Scipione Pulzone (c. 1540/42-1598), on loan from a private collection. Both subjects are depicted wearing armor, which communicated a complex range of associations with masculinity, military valor, wealth, and social status. Pulzone's refined portrait of Boncompagni, commander of the papal army during the reign of his father, Pope Gregory XIII, epitomizes the elegant style that dominated high-society portraiture in late sixteenth-century Rome. El Greco's expressive portrayal of Anastagi, appointed by Boncompagni as sergeant major of Rome's Castel Sant'Angelo in 1575, stands in stark contrast, underscoring the artist's innovative departures from convention. The exhibition is organized by Jeongho Park, Anne L. Poulet Curatorial Fellow.  - See more at: http://www.frick.org//exhibitions/men_armor#sthash.zBNvEa0I.dpuf

Photographic Exhibition Opening: ALEXO WANDAEL ITALIANY

Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò, NY,
ALEXO WANDAEL ITALIANY Photographs by Alexo Wandael   Italian fine art and fashion photographer Alexo Wandael's latest project is a visual celebration of Italians working, living and loving in New York through a series of black and white portraits on location. The exhibition is a window into the Italian excellence here in New York. Stories of Italian human resources often not recognized back home, but evident here in a foreign country whose greatest merit is to appreciate the Italian contribution to culture, science, art, politics, cuisine and medicine.

"Italians in NY, Italians and NY, this is the way I want to present this dream that gives us reasons to be proud of our identity, and this is the reason each portrait is a collaboration more than a simple portrait" says Wandael. The curator and photographer states "I would love to dedicate this project to all those Italians who left their families, their comforts, their mamma, their casa, their pasta by honoring, with my modest contribution, their courage, their sacrifices and their achievements. I think that Italiany is a deserved tribute to my beautiful country that forged such incredible talented individuals".

Nuovi_1409776187.jpg

Nuovi Yorkers

NOoSPHERE Arts, NY,

An artist-run nonprofit venue, NOoSPHERE Arts is a collaborative platform dedicated to art from elsewhere. As a tribute to our greatest patron, Sicilian-born Tony Argento of Broadway Stages, NYC, we are pleased to inaugurate this brand new gallery season with a show of Italian artists who have also made New York their oyster. Spanning several media, the NUOVI YORKERS exhibit unites five Italian New Yorkers who all use the human body as their principal vehicle of expression. A photographer trained in modern dance, Gisella Sorrentino utilizes the process of double-exposure and combines performance with static backgrounds that merge her subjects with textures such as asphalt, cobble stones, sand and ocean water. Working in painting, drawing and sculpture, Barbara Fragogna creates visceral, bloody imagery that is simultaneously compassionate and repulsive, intelligent yet absurd, evoking a feeling of unease. For this show, she will create several pieces on-site in the gallery, working under the gun. Vanessa Longo, a classically-schooled painter and sculptor, uses salvaged wood panels and metal elements to conjure a mythical universe where naked figures interact with animals and monsters of the fantastic realm, often inspired by medieval bestiaries. Maximilian Balduzzi develops original performances out of long-term embodied research. He is committed to integrating narrative, image and vocals with irreducible liveness into postmodern dance and performance art. The driving force behind SignofSound, a multisensory experience constituted as a collective event, Fabiana Yvonne Lugli Martinez will present a new installment of this multidisciplinary art performance based on improvisation and the interplay between music, dance, painting and video. True to the DIY spirit of the NOoSPHERE Arts community, all exhibitors in this show are also proactively involved in creating opportunities that benefit other artists. Gisella is the co-founder of the Gelato! Art Salon, an international art collective based in Brooklyn. Barbara serves as curator at Kunsthaus Tacheles and SineDie Project in Berlin, and is the Founding Publisher of Edizioni Inaudite. One of the leaders of the Free International Artists association, Vanessa promotes artist colleagues in the Florence gallery scene. Maximilian is a co-founder of the Italian performance group Teatro della Pioggia. Like Fabiana, he frequently initiates cooperative projects with other performers, dancers and musicians.

Time

Bosi Contemporary Gallery, NY,

Largo Baracche Project in collaboration with BOSI Contemporary is pleased to present Time, a group exhibition curated by Giuseppe Ruffo and Pietro Tatafiore featuring works by: Maria Giovanna Ambrosone,Choi Jaeyong, Dean Dempsey, Erika Harrsch, Anthony Hawley, Arturo Ianniello, Marta Jovanovic, Corrado La Mattina, Francesca Magnani. Time is the dimension where the flow of events is measured and perceived. Its notion is in direct relation to the flux, continuity and duration of an occurrence, allowing us to define past, present and future. This group exhibition at BOSI Contemporary puts into question the value of art. Can art change the future? Is there any difference between past, present, and future? Is there a cynical" time? Can time fix errors? What about horrors?

Opening reception September 7th 6 - 9 pm.

Almoraima_1405458177.jpg

ALMORAIMA IN CONCERT

Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY,

Almoraima is a multi-ethnic group based in Salento, which presents an original sound inspired by Gypsy musical tradition and, in particular, by the musical connections developed by them on the various sides of the Mediterranean: Southern Italy, Southern Spain, Balcans, Maghreb and Mashrek. It is no coincidence then that the group takes its name from that strip of the Andalusian land between Jerez de la Fronteira, Cordoba and Sevilla, an asylum for refugees Sindi from Rajasthan, North African Moors, Jews, and Spanish coming back from journeys to the Americas, from where they imported innovative rhythms and sounds. The group revolves around the figure of guitarist Massi Almoraima, composer of the music and texts. Talented Vocalist Rachel Andrioli is the latest addition to the group. The formation is completed by ethnic percussionist Roberto Chiga, classical cellist Frederick Musarò, jazz bassist Marco Bardoscia and accordionist Rocco Nigro.

Mogol_1409777993.jpg

Alfredo Rapetti Mogol - Painted Words

Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY,

Alfredo Rapetti Mogol, was born in Milan in 1961,and his artistic training was influenced by the family cultural richness, where for generations music, literaturem and poetry were a constant presence. His maternal grandfather, Alfredo De Pedrini, President of the Association Graphic Arts of Milan, introduced him to the city's artistic environment, helping him to develop a passion for painting. The father, the famous lyricist Mogol, introduces him to the world of music and soon Alfredo establishes himself as a world famous lyricist, winning various Grammy Awards under the pseudonym of Cheope. The talent of Rapetti Mogol extends well beyond music and leads the artist to assert himself primarily as a painter. The success comes both at home and abroad: he exposes his works twice (2009 and 2011) at the Biennale in Venice and participates in numerous installations both collective and personal in museums and art galleries around the world.       Curated by Antonio De Carlo

Mona Lisa: A Life Discovered

Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY,

She was the subject of the most famous painting on earth. We know her name-Lisa Gherardini-but until now, her life has remained a mystery. Not anymore. Thanks to author Dianne Hales, the life of the girl with the iconic smile is no longer unknowable. In MONA LISA: A Life Discovered (Simon & Schuster, August 5 2014), the author, whose bestselling La Bella Lingua earned her an Italian knighthood, reveals, through years of dogged research, the facts of Lisa's life. Dianne Hales's discovery that Lisa Gherardini "was a real woman who lived in Florence 500 years ago" was the beginning of her decades-long quest to know the details of that life, the events and people who would have an influence on the way she lived, and a period that would give rise to a group of uncommonly creative artists who would become the stuff of legend. IIC in collaboration with IACE ( Italian American Committee on Education) is proud to present the new 'La Bella Lingua' Italian classes at the end of the event with signed copy of "La Bella Lingua" book by acclaimed author Dianne Hales. A reception-sponsored by IACE- will follow at 6,30pm

Vico_1410380327.jpg

Vico and Naples

Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY,

Barbara Naddeo's Vico and Naples provides an intellectual portrait of the Neapolitan philosopher Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) that reveals the politics and motivations of one of Europe's first scientists of society, or philosophers of social justice. Rich with period detail and attentive to Vico's historical, rhetorical, and jurisprudential texts, this work provides a compelling and vivid reconstruction of Vico's life and times and of the origins of his powerful notion of the social. Contrary to the conventional wisdom that Vico was a solitary figure, Naddeo recovers a Vico who was keenly attuned to the social changes challenging the political culture and exclusions of his native city and shows that his experiences of civic crises shaped his inquiry into the development of human society and the rights of its members. In Naddeo's pages, Vico comes alive as a prescient observer of Europe's burgeoning metropolises and an advocate for new metropolitan groups. Vico and Naples is the winner of Jacques Barzun Prize in Cultural History (2012). Barbara Naddeo is currently teaching History at the CUNY Graduate Center. Dr. Naddeo specializes in the intellectual and cultural history of early modern Europe, especially Italy. In particular, she is interested in the advent of the metropolis and its significance for the social sciences in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. As her case study, Dr. Naddeo has taken the capital city of Naples, which was the single largest metropolitan community in Europe around 1600 and a laboratory of the human sciences throughout the early modern period. Presently, she is preparing for publication a book manuscript, titled Birth of a Metropolis: The Open City and the Social Sciences in Naples, 1650--1800, and she is completing the research for an allied project on the political career of an early theorist of the metropolitan question, titled State Secrets for the Public Sphere: Giuseppe Maria Galanti, the Demand for Political Accountability and the Emergence of Statistics in Enlightenment Italy.

Stop The Pounding Heart dir. Roberto Minervini

Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY,

Poets of the Italian Diaspora Fordham University Press 2014, 1532 pages Edited by Luigi Bonaffini and Joseph Perricone Participants: Luigi Bonaffini, Peter Carravetta, Joseph Perricone Poets of the Italian Diaspora is part of a long-range project, by the editors and contributors, to expand the boundaries of the Italian literary canon. In the century between 1870 and 1970, about twenty-seven million migrants left Italy to work and live abroad. As a result, the worldwide Italian diaspora reportedly numbers more than sixty million people. Until now, however, there has not been an anthology devoted to the literature of the Italian diaspora that places it in a global context. This landmark volume presents a truly international selection of works by more than seventy Italian-language poets who are writing in countries from Australia to Venezuela. Their poetry is collected here into eleven geographical regions. The history and current state of Italian-language poetry in each region receives a critical overview by a knowledgeable scholar, who also introduces each poet and provides a bibliography of his or her work. All poems appear on facing pages in both Italian and English. Luigi Bonaffini is professor of Modern Languages at Brooklyn College. Joseph Perricone teaches in the Dept. of Modern Languages and Literatures and in the Program of Literary Studies at Fordham University. Peter Carravetta is D'Amato Professor of Italian and Italian American Studies at Stony Brook University.
