ALBERTO SAVINIO, CIMA ANNUAL INSTALLATION

0ctober 6, 2017 - June 23, 2018

421 Broome Street, 4th floor, New York

 

The Center for Italian Modern Art presents the first major public exhibition in the United States of the work of Alberto Savinio (1891–1952).

Hailed by poet and critic Guillaume Apollinaire as the paragon of a Renaissance man, Savinio, the younger brother of Giorgio de Chirico, was a gifted pianist, composer, musicologist, critic, and writer, in addition to visual artist. CIMA’s exhibition will highlight in particular the paintings he produced after his 1926 move to Paris, where he was soon immersed in the city’s avant-garde. There, the success of his first solo show brought him a commission for the private apartments of famed art dealer Léonce Rosenberg, where his work hung alongside that of Max Ernst, Fernand Léger, and Francis Picabia, among others. Yet despite his achievements, he is today virtually unknown outside of Italy.

The exhibition, which will comprise about 25 paintings, will explore Savinio’s work through two major themes: imaginary spaces and the family as a site of perilous ambiguity.

BRUNO MUNARI Works: 1930 - 1996

May 17 – June 29, 2018

Andrew Kreps Gallery

537/535 West 22nd street, New York

 

Andrew Kreps Gallery, in collaboration with Kaufmann Repetto, is pleased to announce the first survey exhibition in the United States of Bruno Munari's (b. 1907, Milan, d. 1998, Milan) work, curated by Alberto Salvadori, an art historian based in Florence.

The exhibition, which will occupy both the gallery's 537 and 535 West 22nd Street locations, will include seminal works from key moments within Munari's oeuvre.

Bruno Munari described himself as an “artist, writer, inventor, designer, architect, and illustrator,” a list that is nowhere near exhaustive. He began his career at an early age during the second wave of Italian Futurists, exhibiting his work for the first time in1927 at Galleria Pesaro, Milan. Simultaneously he pursued activities as an art-director, curator, and illustrator. In the years following, he progressively moved away from the influence of Futurism, developing an extremely personal and singular project over the course of 60 years.
