New York New York. Italian Art: rediscovering America
The exhibition presents the stories of the Italian artists who traveled, stayed, worked, exhibited in the United States, and in New York in particular, or only imagined the New World in search of a freer spirit and forms different from the ones of Europe.
The exhibition unfolds between the two museum locations (Palazzo dell’Arengario and Gallerie d’Italia) and includes about 150 works: the spaces of the Museum of the 20th Century (Via Marconi 1) render homage to the American imaginary and, in particular, the intensive relationship with the city of New York as perceived by the Italian artists - including works by Afro, Paolo Baratella, Corrado Cagli, Pietro Consagra, Giorgio De Chirico, Fortunato Depero, Tano Festa, Lucio Fontana, Emilio Isgrò, Sergio Lombardo, Titina Maselli, Costantino Nivola, Gastone Novelli, Vinicio Paladini, Arnaldo Pomodoro, Mimmo Rotella, Savinio, Toti Scialoja, Tancredi, Turcato. A section to itself will be dedicated to the photographic work of Ugo Mulas in relation to New York and American artists.
The exhibition continues at the Italian Galleries (Piazza Scala 6), where visitors can retrace exhibitions organized in the United States dedicated to Italian artists. Masterpieces from the exhibition "Twentieth Century Italian Art" held in 1949 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York will be presented in the halls of the venue of Piazza Scala, with works by artists such as Umberto Boccioni, Giacomo Balla, Carlo Carrà and Giorgio Morandi and with works of artists from the 1950s and 1960s.
