Italian Futurism at the Guggenheim Museum
Friday, August 15, 2014
Curator Vivien Greene discusses the exhibition “Italian Futurism, 1909–1944: Reconstructing the Universe,” on view at the Guggenheim Museum through September 1. It’s the first comprehensive overview in the United States of one of Europe’s most important 20th-century avant-garde movements. Featuring over 360 works by more than 80 artists, architects, designers, photographers, and writers, the show examines the full historical breadth of Futurism, from its Filippo Tommaso Marinetti’s first Futurist manifesto in 1909 through its demise at the end of World War II.
