CLOSING DAY: LAST CHANCE TO VIEW OUR CURRENT EXHIBITION
01 June 2019 / 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Join us on Saturday, June 1, the last day of Metaphysical Masterpieces 1916–1920: Morandi, Sironi, and Carrà, for a special Open House! Don’t miss this final chance to enjoy a visit of this “beautiful and enlightening show” (Lance Esplund, The Wall Street Journal) in CIMA’s unique and intimate setting.
Organized in collaboration with Pinacoteca di Brera (Milan), this exhibition is CIMA’s first group show and offers to the American and international public an extraordinary opportunity to view early works by Giorgio Morandi that are rarely displayed. Other highlights include a foundational Metaphysical painting by Giorgio de Chirico as well as important works by Carlo Carrà and Mario Sironi. All of them were produced in a very short, yet pivotal, span of years, between Futurism and the so-called “return to order” of the Twenties. CIMA’s exhibition and public programs aim to illuminate the cultural and socio-political contexts in which Metaphysical painting was born and developed, broadening our understanding of this provocative yet short-lived style.
It is time to say goodbye: these paintings will soon be housed at the Brera Modern – which is scheduled to open in 2020 as Milan’s newest public institution devoted to modern art – and will likely not be exhibited in the United States for a long time after, and never again will the works in this exhibition be displayed together as they are in this unique show.
The Open House will conclude with a light aperitivo reception with CIMA’s fellows and staff.
