Futurism: About the Movement

Futurism was an avant-garde movement launched in Italy in 1909 that rejected traditional forms and incorporated the energy and the dynamism of modern technology into art. It began in literature but spread to every medium, including painting, sculpture, industrial design, architecture, cinema and music. The exhibit will feature various works of Italian futurist artists from the collection of Mr. and Mrs. Stefano Acunto. Featured artists include: Giacomo Balla, Lucio Venna, Roberto Crippa, Alberto Bragaglia, Gerado Dottori and Peppe Rizzo. Also on display are the widely collected Futurist masterworks of Edward Giobbi. Giobbi’s paintings appear in Whitney Museum of American Art, The Art Institute of Chicago and Academia di Belle Arti, Florence, Italy.
