The Center for Italian Modern Art (CIMA) is a 501c3 public nonprofit exhibition and research center established in 2013 in New York City to promote public appreciation and advance the study of modern and contemporary Italian art in the United States and internationally.

Each year CIMA presents in its spacious loft in SoHo multiple installations examining the work of modern Italian artists rarely exhibited in the U.S. These installations bring the art of inspiring masters into dialogue with contemporary artists, illustrating its impact and ongoing resonance today. The exhibitions serve as the theme for CIMA’s fellowship program, which aims to promote new scholarship and dialogue in the field through the support of emerging young scholars from around the world.

CIMA is open for public visits to its exhibition on Fridays and Saturdays; booking in advance via our Eventbrite is mandatory. From 11am to 6pm on Saturday we hold open hours; in person tours led by our fellows in residence are given at 11am, 2pm and 6pm on Fridays. Throughout the season, CIMA holds special tours, events, conversations, and study days as part of its programming.

CIMA Members are welcome on other days of the week by appointment to enjoy the space and exhibition on their own; members also receive the annual catalogue, free entry to our tours and programs, and invitations to special members-only events. Join us!
