16:35Italian Futurism Summer Public Programs at the Guggenheim Museum by @Guggenheim
Described by the New York Times as “epic” and a “phenomenal show of shows,” Italian Futurism, 1909–1944: Reconstructing the Universe is the first comprehensive overview in the United States of one of Europe’s most important 20th-century avant-garde movements. In conjunction with the exhibition, which is on view through September 1, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum presents a series of public programs this summer, including an in-gallery program led by a Futurist scholar, film screenings, and performances. For complete information about the programs presented, please visit guggenheim.org/futurism-events.
PAAAAAAroooooooooooole in Libertà Futuriste
Saturday and Sunday, June 7 and 8, 12 pm
Monday, June 9, 6:30 pm
Words-in-freedom (parole in libertà) poetry is one of the Futurists’ most significant artistic innovations. Freeing language from the constraints of syntax, these poetic and artistic experiments embraced onomatopoeia, differentiations in font weight and size, and pictorial arrangements of letters, numbers, and symbols. Operating as published poems and visual artworks, many such compositions were also intended to be performed aloud and were declaimed onstage at Futurist serate (performative evenings). In this in-gallery program, composer, performer, and musicologist Luciano Chessa performs declamations of selected words-in-freedom poems by F. T. Marinetti and Francesco Cangiullo. An expanded evening performance in the Peter B. Lewis Theater includes compositions by Paolo Buzzi, Carlo Carrà, Fortunato Depero, and Aldo Palazzeschi, among others, and a special presentation of Cangiullo’s Piedigrotta accompanied by Neapolitan folk instruments.
Italian Futurist Design: From Furniture to Ceramics
Tuesday, June 24, 6:30 pm
The program of creative intervention proclaimed by Futurist artists Giacomo Balla and Fortunato Depero in their 1915 manifesto “Futurist Reconstruction of the Universe” was to encompass not only the full spectrum of the arts and architecture, but also interior design and objects for domestic use. In this gallery program, Silvia Barisione, Curator, The Wolfsonian–Florida International University, Miami Beach, explores Futurist design and decorative arts from the activity of the so-called case d’arte (art houses), Futurist workshops for the creation of furnishings, textiles, toys, and household goods, to the Futurist ceramic production sanctioned by the 1938 publication of “Ceramics and aeroceramics: Futurist manifesto.”
Tuesday, July 15, 12 pm
Wednesday, July 16, 6:30 pm
Maestro Daniele Lombardi performs Futurist music by composers Francesco Balilla Pratella, Franco Casavola, and Silvio Mix, among others. Highlighting the myriad Futurist endeavors to transform and revolutionize sound—including Luigi Russolo’s intonarumori (noisemaking devices), isochronic experiments inspired by the machine, new ideas for a synesthetic theater, and the fusion of diverse musical genres—these piano performances demonstrate the transmission of Futurism’s emphasis on speed to the temporal genre of music.
