2nd Night Added: Happy Hour and Private Tour at the Center for Italian Modern Art in SoHo
Italian-designed Posters from the '30s-'50s in a Stunning Manhattan Loft
DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND, WE'VE ADDED A 2ND NIGHT! Join the Brown Club in NY as one of the research fellows at The Center for Italian Modern Art gives us a private tour of their current exhibition, From Depero to Rotella: Italian Commercial Posters Between Advertising and Art, preceded by an 'aperitivo' with spritzes and light bites in the Center's beautifully designed Italian kitchen.
This visit will explore the cross-pollination between avant-garde art and commercial posters in Italy, with a particular focus on the interwar years and the early post-World War II era, the country’s economic boom. These posters’ ambition to deliver alluring forms and contents to the masses, rather than to an elite circle, makes them an object of socioeconomic and philosophical interest, as well as eye-catching and sometimes witty examples of the excellence of Italian design.
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. Each year CIMA presents in its spacious SoHo loft installations examining the work of modern Italian artists rarely exhibited in the U.S. These exhibitions serve as the theme and subject for CIMA’s fellowship program, which aims to promote new scholarship and dialogue in the field by supporting emerging young scholars, and offer a vast public the rare opportunity to experience fine art in a domestic setting, as if they were visiting a collector's home.
