Medardo Rosso

CIMA - Center for Italian Modern Art, NY,

This fall, the Center for Italian Modern Art (CIMA) will present a major installation of sculpture, drawing, and experimental photography by acclaimed modernist Medardo Rosso, revealing the masterful range of an artist known chiefly for his three-dimensional work. Anchored by a major loan from the Museo Medardo Rosso in Barzio, Italy, the presentation explores the broad range of materials-from gesso, wax, and bronze, to photography and drawing-in which Rosso worked. The installation marks the first time that a comprehensive group of drawings by Rosso will be on view together. "Medardo Rosso" will be the second presentation mounted by the foundation. CIMA will concurrently present two works by the American artist Cy Twombly, including the painting Untitled (New York City), 1956, and the work-on-paper Idilion, 1976. Born in the U.S., Twombly spent much of his life in Rome and frequently drew inspiration from classical mythology and the Italian Renaissance. His paintings and drawings often feature large-scale, freely made, calligraphic marks-emotive gestures that will foster a dynamic dialogue when presented alongside the drawings of Rosso.

Francesco Vezzoli: Teatro Romano

MoMA PS1, NY,

Drawing on extensive research about the use of color in antiquity, Italian artist Francesco Vezzoli (b. 1971) has collaborated with a team of archaeologists, conservators and polychrome specialists to paint five ancient Roman busts in the manner in which they would originally have been decorated. While white marble remains the quintessential material of ancient Greek and Roman statuary, extensive research has confirmed that ancient sculpture was painted in a vivid palette of yellows, blues, reds and greens. Dating from the first and second centuries A.D., Vezzoli's Roman Imperial busts restore to contemporary imagination the decorated surfaces that have faded away over nearly two thousand years.

Rigorismo

Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY,

A "rigor" that forces space to become a thing, rather than for things to fill space.

There is an intellectual depth and philosophical conception, and it could be argued that this is a new beginning, which is inspired by the rigor of the forms and the relationship with space, hence Rigorism.

Choices and dictates do not preclude, however, the explosion of the ego of the artist. There is no trace of seriality, cold running or stiffness, but makes the sensitivities of the different artists and their personalities stand out immediately.

The canvas is bent and shaped on a precise idea, which manifests itself in different ways depending on the hand that has created it: the charm of the artists chosen is just that, to find out how each personality behind the canvas, behind the protrusions and recesses, behind the color or no color, and how each of them finds himself and his emotions.

The Galleria Arte Centro Lattuada has selected seventeen artists, that have decided to take on a challenge that would be proposed with the stamp of a more radical rigor.

Opening - BACK TO THE '80s From Arte Povera to the Rediscovery of Nuovi Nuovi

Ierimonti Gallery, suite 503, NY,

 

Ierimonti Gallery opens its new location in New York presenting an overview of the extensive and prolific Italian art panorama of the 1970s and the 1980s.While politics and economics underwent a profound transformation and culture transitioned from progressive modernism to the postmodernist weak thought, Italian art at the time elaborated old and new themes using the most disparate materials. Artists shifted from using industrial materials such as iron, coal, wood bundles, neon, mirrors, terracotta-common in Arte Povera (Mario Merz, Jannis Kounellis, Alighiero Boetti, Pierpaolo Calzolari, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Emilio Prini)-to dismantling installations and favoring paint and color-popular among Transavanguardia, Anacronisti and Nuovi Nuovi.

Vital Shift In Central Observer

Bosi Contemporary Gallery, NY,

BOSI Contemporary is pleased to present a two-person show featuring sculptures by Tao Kulczycki and the two new series of paintings by Ian Swanson, never before exhibited in New York. Both artists' works use different techniques and transform their materials into investigations of our humanity. While Tao Kulczycki uses a various assortment of altered objects in order to semi-embody his sculptures with symbols, Ian Swanson's paintings use direct and simple tools of representation to engage the viewer to interpret their inner intensity. The two artists use representation, objects and images we might immediately recognize, and combine them to create a feeling of unfamiliarity.   

Tao Kulczycki will be presenting a new series of aggregates; these fabricated ready-mades lend themselves towards a more abstract form where the object per se is transfigured in a way that is not immediately recognizable. The peculiarity of their assembly and modification find a stability not only symbolically but literally where the sculptures seem to balance. Often using a contrasting approach to materials, Kulczycki finds equilibrium between the natural and the fabricated/technological.

Donatello_1423605300.jpg

Sculpture in the Age of Donatello

Museum of Biblical Art, NY,

Twenty-three masterpieces of early Florentine Renaissance sculpturemost never seen outside Italy-will be exhibited at MOBIA as the centerpiece of the Museum's tenth anniversary season. MOBIA will be the sole world-wide venue for this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. These works-by Donatello, Brunelleschi, Nanni di Banco, Luca della Robbia and others-were made in the first decades of the fifteenth century for Florence Cathedral ("Il Duomo"), which was then in the last phase of its construction, and are figural complements to Brunelleschi's soaring dome, conveying an analogous sense of courage and human potential. Like the dome, these statues of prophets and saints express the spiritual tension of a faith-driven humanism destined to transform Western culture.

Lecture: Haunting And The Postcolonial Ethics Of The Gaze

Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò, NY,
A lecture by Rhiannon Noel Welch, Rutgers University   Italy's renowned poet, novelist, cultural theorist, and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini dedicated much of his cinematic production to exploring the archaic trace-the ontological, epistemological, and material remnants of a past that had resisted appropriation by consumerist postmodernity. If Derrida's notion of spectropoetics most aptly defines Pasolini's film theory and practice (Ricciardi 2003), scholars of the Italian postcolonial have used the spectral to describe the nature of collective memory, by calling attention to the return of Italy's colonial past in the figure of the contemporary immigrant. 'Eclipse,' 'evaporation,' and 'displacement' have likewise been used to describe the peculiar nature of Italian films about decolonization and contemporary immigration.

Emanuele Cisi in Concert

Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY,

Emanuele's encounter in 2010 with the italians but since long time New York based Joseph Lepore and Luca Santaniello, produce a simultaneous musical empathy and positive energy.

After few gigs in New York, they decide to afford a quick recording session, which brings to life a bunch of original tunes mostly signed by the leader, and creative renditions of beautiful standards.

Robust swing, interplay and spontaneous inventions are the main elements of their playng. A trio deeply rooted in the purest tradition of Jazz, with some truly original taste added. From Coltrane to Rollins through a subtle balance between grooves and melodies, but with a distinctive and original approach, thanks to their three strong personalities. Their recording debut, entitled "Where or When", has been released in 2013 by the american worldwide reknowned Maxjazz label.

Lecture: Deconstructing Rome

Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò, NY,

A lecture by Federica Pedriali (University of Edinburgh)

This presentation uses Paolo Sorrentino's La grande bellezza (2013) and Rosi's Sacro Gra (2013) to frame a selective deconstruction of the Eternal City. Paragraphs include Genius of Rome (broadly based on a long view of the city's primary logistics: place and time), Grand Narratives (focusing on an evolving Roman mythology driven by polarised qualifiers and tags), Individual Trajectories (looking at the default impact made by Rome on travellers from different periods) and Hope of Rome: Resurrection vs Resurgence (tackling the city's role in and since the Risorgimento and particularly under fascism). An additional feature of this pacey main menu is a reading of contemporary Italy as both the home of the seven deadly sins and the positive collective survivor reaffirmed as part of Gabriele Salvatores' social filmItaly in a Day (2014). In a fitting methodological twist, the continuing anachronistic centrality of Rome in the latest age of global anxiety will also emerge from the application of key theoretical readings by contemporary thinkers and planners.

The Mafia Kills Only in Summer

Quad Cinema, NY,

CHARMING AND ENGROSSING! 

Italian TV star Pierfrancesco Diliberto finds unlikely comedy in the murderous criminal underworld of his native Sicily." -Hollywood Reporter

"REMARKABLE! TERRIFIC FEATURE DEBUT! Clever comedy and powerful message!" -Variety

Pierfrancesco Diliberto (a renowned TV host and political comedian, better known as Pif) wrote, directed, and stars in this subversive, irreverent feature debut about Arturo, a young boy whose obsession with the Mafia's casual presence in his city surpasses even his passion for Flora, the beautiful schoolmate who remains his main love interest until adulthood. Pif uses Arturo's unrequited love story as the vehicle to narrate the most tragic events in Italy's recent history, starting with the Cosa Nostra's criminal actions in Sicily in the '70s, which soon spread through the country (encompassing the barbaric murder of judges Falcone and Borsellino, an event that Pif handles with astounding boldness). Winner of the Audience Award at the Torino Film Festival, The Mafia Kills Only in Summer is a brave and intelligent dark comedy with a powerful message.
