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.

Parmigi_1399582272.jpg

The Poetry of Parmigianino's Schiava Turca

The Frick Collection, NY,

Francesco Mazzola (1503-1540), called Parmigianino after Parma, the Northern Italian city of his birth, was one of the most prolific and celebrated artists of the sixteenth century. Known as "Raphael reborn," he mastered the arts of painting, drawing, and printmaking and was renowned for his portraits. Today his exquisite portrait of an unknown woman called the Schiava Turca (Turkish Slave) is an icon of Parma. The painting, which has rarely been seen outside its home institution, the Galleria Nazionale di Parma, travels to the United States for the first time for its presentation at The Frick Collection (and subsequently at the Legion of Honor, part of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco). The showing at the Frick marks the museum's third collaboration with the Foundation for Italian Art & Culture (FIAC), a series of loans focused on the female portrait in the Renaissance. The collaboration previously featured Raphael's La Fornarina (Rome, Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica, Palazzo Barberini) and Parmigianino's Antea (Naples, Museo di Capodimonte). The Poetry of Parmigianino's "Schiava Turca" will be accompanied by a catalogue and numerous public programs. The exhibition is curated by Aimee Ng,Research Associate at The Frick Collection and Lecturer in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University, and is organized by The Frick Collection with the Foundation for Italian Art & Culture. Support for the presentation in New York is generously provided by Gabelli Funds, Aso O. Tavitian, The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, Mr. and Mrs. Hubert L. Goldschmidt, Hester Diamond, and the Foundation for Italian Art & Culture.

Collec_1403733800.jpg

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.

FROM STREET TO ART Curated by Simone Pallotta

Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY,

"From street to Art" is an overview of Italian Street Art through the work of 10 contemporary artists, hosted by the Italian Cultural institute of New York, and curated by Simone Pallotta. The exhibition presents the individuals who have determined the Italian Street Art scene over the past two decades, presenting works which portray authoritative and personal artistic vision. The purpose is to show the development of a new generation of artists who share a strong urban presence and establish a dialogue with the Italian artistic avant-garde. Since the 1970's, New York has inspired the birth of a new urban culture, conquering the art world by defining a renewed way of connecting with the public space. Graffiti is exemplary of this phenomenon, while speaking a language unintelligible to the masses. With the first exhibition of Italian Street Art right in New York, we observe a strong and independent creative propulsion, which has led some of these artists to present their work within more understandable formal schemes. It is at a distance from graffiti, while maintaining a closer connection with the public, and giving a strong sense of urban presence. The exhibition investigates a generation of artists, who are beginning to shape the future of art in Italy, and of Italian art in the world: Agostino Iacurci, Aris, BR1, Cyop&Kaf, Dem, Eron, Hitnes, Sten&Lex, Ufo5, 2501. On view Monday through Friday, 10 AM to 4PM.

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.

Otello

The Metropolitan Opera, NY,

In Verdi's retelling of Shakespeare's towering tragedy, Renée Fleming gives a captivating performance as the innocent Desdemona, a role long considered one of her calling cards. As the title hero, Johan Botha, delivers an imposing portrayal of a proud warrior brought down by jealousy, and Falk Struckmann is thrilling as the villainous Iago.

ALDO DE VERO, GIUSEPPE CAMPISI: PIANO DUET

Italian Cultural Institute, NY,

Aldo de Vero and Giuseppe Campisi met in 2006 and decided to form a piano duet. Since then, they have played an amazing number of concerts in Italy and Europe, though Aldo lives in Naples and Giuseppe lives in Avola, Sicily. What makes their (very long distance!) rehearsal meetings fruitful and alive is the awakening of a deep-rooted love for music that unifies all the possible different interpretative perspectives in a respectful joy of music making. As a result their performances (almost!) always lead audiences to an enthusiastic reaction.  Aldo and Giuseppe have most of the four-hand piano literature at their hands, and most of the literature for two pianos.  Aldo and Giuseppe's innovative take on performing inspired some contemporary composers, like the Italian Gianfranco Gioia, Rosario Fronte and the Norwegian Arnt Hakon Anesen, to write some pieces for the Duo.

ANTI-PASTA: A Dinner Inspired by Italian Futurism

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, NY,

"What we think or dream or do is determined by what we eat and what we drink." -"The Manifesto of Futurist Cuisine"

Participate in a dinner inspired by the Italian Futurists' strong beliefs on dining and nutrition designed and hosted by cookbook author and restaurateur Mimmetta Lo Monte in the museum's Wright Restaurant.

Ms. Lo Monte and Vivien Greene, Guggenheim Senior Curator, 19th- and Early 20th-Century Art and curator ofItalian Futurism, 1909-1944: Reconstructing the Universe, will introduce dishes based on recipes from Filippo Tommaso Marinetti's 1932 Futurist Cookbook, served with accompanying wines.

Futurism was intended to be not just an artistic idiom but an entirely new way of life. The "Manifesto of Futurist Cuisine," written by Marinetti and Fillia (Luigi Colombo) and first published in the Gazzetta del Popolo in Turin in 1930, laid out a number of instructions in a "scheme for a complete rethinking of what we eat." Primary among these was "to be rid of pasta, that idiotic gastronomic fetish of the Italians." Aiming to establish "a diet in keeping with an increasingly airborne, faster pace of life," the manifesto laid out 11 requirements for the perfect meal, including harmony between table setting and food, the invention of food sculptures, and the use of scents, poetry, and music, as well as scientific instruments during preparation.

In keeping with the multidisciplinary spirit of Futurism, the dinner will follow a 7 pm performance of FUTURISMUSIC by pianist Daniele Lombardi, which will take place in the museum's rotunda while guests view the Italian Futurismexhibition.

Tickets for the dinner are available for $200 per person, including the concert. Space is extremely limited and reservations are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Mimmetta Lo Monte is an acclaimed Italian food specialist from Palermo, Sicily, who lives between Palermo and Washington, D.C. She is the author of two cookbooks, La Bella Cucina and Mimmetta Lo Monte's Classic Sicilian Cooking. The first is a primer on Italian cooking written when the prevailing trends in Italian food in the United States leaned to Italian-American recipes rather than authentic cuisine. The second book, for more advanced chefs and for anyone interested in Italian culture, collects many old recipes from the nineteenth-century, culled from a cookbook of her grandfather's, as well as gathered traveling from tiny villages and remote monasteries in Sicily. For many years Ms. Lo Monte held a popular cooking course at her home in Washington. She went on to run a successful catering business and eventually had a restaurant of her own, Mimmetta's, also in Washington. She has been a contributor to Bon Appétit and culinary publications on regional Italian cuisine and was the spokesperson for Classico Sauce, appearing nationally on TV and radio.

ALONG THE DANUBE: ROMANS, THEIR NEIGHBORS, AND THE MAKING OF EUROPE

Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY,

The Danube river is one of the main locations marking the long process of the creation and contestation of European civilization in the late Roman period. As we celebrate the European Union and the political and cultural legacy of Europe today, we take the opportunity to turn back to the historical past and to the gradual formation of Europe in the ancient time period. For this purpose, an academic panel of specialists on the late Roman period will present on different aspects of the society at the time, including art and architecture, the ancient economy, the political and social system, and religion. 

The participants in this panel will be Dr. Anne Chen (Metropolitan Museum; Brown University); Dr. Hendrik Dey (Hunter College); Justin Dombrowski (PhD candidate at Columbia University); and Dr. Stamenka Antonova (King's College, NYC). 

Each speaker will make a short presentation aimed at a general audience and the panel will welcome questions for discussion.  This event is organized and sponsored by the Bulgarian Cultural Salon, the Italian Cultural Institute, and the Romanian Cultural Institute.

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.

FUTURISMUSIC

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, NY,

Performed by maestro Daniele Lombardi, this recital presents Futurist music by composers Francesco Ballila Pratella, Franco Casavola, and Silvio Mix, among others. Highlighting the myriad Futurist endeavors to transform and revolutionize sound, including the noise-making of Luigi Russolo, isochronic experiments inspired by the machine, the new idea of a synesthetic theater, and the fusion of diverse musical genres, these piano performances demonstrate the transmission of Futurists' emphasis on speed to the temporal genre of music.

Followed by a reception and exhibition viewing of Italian Futurism, 1909-1944: Reconstructing the Universe.

Thaïs by Anton Giulio Bragaglia

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, NY,

In conjunction with Italian Futurism, 1909-1944: Reconstructing the Universe, the Guggenheim is pleased to screen Anton Giulio Bragaglia's 1916 film Thaïs. While many Futurist artists shied away from technological media, Anton Giulio Bragaglia made important advancements in the field of photography and directed the feature film Thaïs in 1916. A classic Italian "diva film," Thaïs follows a Slavic countess and seductress of the same name. Out of regret for seducing her best friend's husband, Thaïs commits suicide in a dramatic final scene in which her body is crushed by the sharp, geometric set designed by Futurist artist Enrico Prampolini.

Velocità by Pippo Oriani

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, NY,

In conjunction with Italian Futurism, 1909-1944: Reconstructing the Universe, the Guggenheim is pleased to screen Pippo Oriani's 1930-31 film Velocità. One of few remaining Futurist films, Velocità (also known as Vitesse) was directed by Pippo Oriani between 1930 and 1931. A montage of surreal and detached images, the film exemplifies the experimental nature of Futurist cinema. Speeding trains and whirring typewriters speak to the movement's love of velocity and mechanical devices, while toy airplanes soaring above collaged landscapes embody the national fascination with flight.

Aragosta_1404941405.jpg

ARAGOSTA (Lobster) by ASMED-Balletto Teatro di Sardegna

The Wild Project, NY,

ARAGOSTA (Lobster) by ASMED-Balletto Teatro di Sardegna World premiere Presented by Between the Seas Festival The new production by ASMED - Balletto di Sardegna carries on its work of research around the great non-conformist Italian stylist of the thirties, Elsa Schiaparelli, began last year. Nowadays Elsa Schiaparelli still inspires many generations of contemporary artists not only in Italy but also at an international level. This time, the reflection takes shape in ARAGOSTA, a completely new piece enriched with surprising concepts and abstract expression codes. The new choreography stems from that unstoppable pulse to create and express oneself at all costs and despite everything; in spite of the imposed cultural roles, the crushing social conventions and the timeless conflict between the natural and social being. It has been spontaneous and almost irresistible to associate the stylish exuberance of Schiaparelli with the innovative expressive hardiness of Moreno Solinas, the emerging choreographer, who gives authorship to this new work. Sardinian by birth but Londoner by choice, Solinas distinguishes himself both for his cosmopolitan attitude and North European sensitivity. His never-ending creativity and natural predisposition to catch new aspects and visual angles makes him the most brilliant artist to give an original interpretation of the Italian designer's genius. Choreography: Moreno Solinas Dancers: Francesca Assiero Brà, Anna Paola Della Chiesa, Rachele Montis Artistic Director: Massimiliano Leoni Production assistant: Silvia Muratori Administration: Elisabetta Corona Production: ASMED Supported by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Autonomous Region of Sardinia (ITALY)

THE LOSS OF SO MANY

Bosi Contemporary, NY,

BOSI Contemporary is pleased to announce The Loss of So Many, a solo exhibition by David Mellen. The exhibition will feature works that question the idea of dimensionality and how a canvas can become a vehicle for more than just two-dimensional representation.

 

Combining the sculptural and the painterly in Red Lies Body, Meter, Still Stand, and Into the Throats of Birds, Mellen creates a trapeze act between the flat and the three dimensional, between the placeable and the unidentifiable. The physical malleability of the sculptural parallels the impressionable subject matter.
