Description

    • Imported from USA.

    Published to accompany the exhibition Italian Futurism,
    1909-1944: Reconstructing the Universe opening at the Solomon R.
    Guggenheim Museum in 2014, this catalogue considerably advances
    the scholarship and understanding of an influential yet
    little-known twentieth- century artistic movement. As part of the
    first comprehensive overview of Italian Futurism to be presented
    in the United States, this publication examines the historical
    sweep of Futurism from its inception with F.T. Marinetti's
    manifesto in 1909 through the movement's demise at the end of
    World War II. Presenting over 300 works created between 1909 and
    1944, by artists, writers, designers and composers such as
    Giacomo Balla, Umberto Boccioni, Anton Giulio Bragaglia,
    Fortunato Depero, Gerardo Dottori, Marinetti, Ivo Pannaggi, Rosa
    Rosà, Luigi Russolo, Tato and many others, this publication
    encompasses not only painting and sculpture, but also
    architecture, design, ceramics, fashion, film, photography,
    advertising, free-form poetry, publications, music, theater and
    performance. A wealth of scholarly essays discuss Italian
    Futurism's diverse themes and incarnations.
