This week is the last official week at CIMA for the Fall Fellows, Chiara Fabi and Francesco Guzzetti. They each shared some thoughts on one work in the Medardo Rosso exhibition: Take a look at these new videos from CIMA!
This weekend, as the Fortunato Depero exhibition at the Juan March Foundation closes in Madrid, we take a look back at our inaugural installation with a series of videos featuring CIMA’s 2013-14 fellows Fabio Belloni and Raffaele Bedarida.
In honor of the opening today at the Juan March Foundation in Madrid of the exhibition Depero Futurista, 1913-1950, we are pleased to present a guest post by Gianluca Poldi, a post-doctoral researcher in conservation science at the University of Bergamo, Italy.
What better idea than that of exposing in our New York City blog of CIMA two paintings by Fortunato Depero that underscore the vivacity and the dynamism of the metropolis. One currently exhibited in the exhibition, Reconstructing the Universe: Italian Futurism 1909-1944 at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (Fig. 1: Grattacieli e tunnel [Skyscrapers and Tunnel]),…
In 1940 Depero wrote these lines about his painting, Io e Mia Moglie (I and My Wife), one of the only self-portraits he ever made: This painting is one of the first examples of a ‘psychological portrait.’ It was conceived in Viareggio in 1918 and finished in Rovereto in 1919. Made and inspired by the house that I lived in in the Tyrrhenian city.
Earlier this month, during Frieze and the other art fairs, hundreds of artists from all over the world came to New York and distributed business cards featuring their website or flashed their iPads to show their portfolio.
