On Monday evening the Center for Italian Modern Art launched its inaugural and much anticipated “Drawing Night.” In collaboration with the New York Studio School (NYSS), CIMA opened its exhibition space to artists and students to draw inspiration from Giorgio Morandi’s works. Supplies for the evening were generously donated by the storied Italian paper-making company, Fabriano.
On the centenary of the birth of Italian artist Alberto Burri (1915-1995), professor Emily Braun, a member of the advisory committee of the Center for Italian Modern Art, guest curates an overdue and overwhelming retrospective exhibition at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.
The Milan Triennale Library and Archives, known as the Biblioteca del Progetto, is exactly what you might expect of a space situated in an iconic cultural institute devoted to art and design. It is a wonderful place for visitors that have wandered off course from the main Triennale’s exhibition route and especially for scholars, like Teresa KIttler, to peruse as they wait for documents to arrive.
