Medardo Rosso

CIMA - Center for Italian Modern Art, NY,

This fall, the Center for Italian Modern Art (CIMA) will present a major installation of sculpture, drawing, and experimental photography by acclaimed modernist Medardo Rosso, revealing the masterful range of an artist known chiefly for his three-dimensional work. Anchored by a major loan from the Museo Medardo Rosso in Barzio, Italy, the presentation explores the broad range of materials-from gesso, wax, and bronze, to photography and drawing-in which Rosso worked. The installation marks the first time that a comprehensive group of drawings by Rosso will be on view together. "Medardo Rosso" will be the second presentation mounted by the foundation. CIMA will concurrently present two works by the American artist Cy Twombly, including the painting Untitled (New York City), 1956, and the work-on-paper Idilion, 1976. Born in the U.S., Twombly spent much of his life in Rome and frequently drew inspiration from classical mythology and the Italian Renaissance. His paintings and drawings often feature large-scale, freely made, calligraphic marks-emotive gestures that will foster a dynamic dialogue when presented alongside the drawings of Rosso.

Francescovezzoli_1418416176.jpg

Francesco Vezzoli: Teatro Romano

MoMA PS1, NY,

Drawing on extensive research about the use of color in antiquity, Italian artist Francesco Vezzoli (b. 1971) has collaborated with a team of archaeologists, conservators and polychrome specialists to paint five ancient Roman busts in the manner in which they would originally have been decorated. While white marble remains the quintessential material of ancient Greek and Roman statuary, extensive research has confirmed that ancient sculpture was painted in a vivid palette of yellows, blues, reds and greens. Dating from the first and second centuries A.D., Vezzoli's Roman Imperial busts restore to contemporary imagination the decorated surfaces that have faded away over nearly two thousand years.

Rigorismo

Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY,

A "rigor" that forces space to become a thing, rather than for things to fill space.

There is an intellectual depth and philosophical conception, and it could be argued that this is a new beginning, which is inspired by the rigor of the forms and the relationship with space, hence Rigorism.

Choices and dictates do not preclude, however, the explosion of the ego of the artist. There is no trace of seriality, cold running or stiffness, but makes the sensitivities of the different artists and their personalities stand out immediately.

The canvas is bent and shaped on a precise idea, which manifests itself in different ways depending on the hand that has created it: the charm of the artists chosen is just that, to find out how each personality behind the canvas, behind the protrusions and recesses, behind the color or no color, and how each of them finds himself and his emotions.

The Galleria Arte Centro Lattuada has selected seventeen artists, that have decided to take on a challenge that would be proposed with the stamp of a more radical rigor.

Opening - BACK TO THE '80s From Arte Povera to the Rediscovery of Nuovi Nuovi

Ierimonti Gallery, suite 503, NY,

 

Ierimonti Gallery opens its new location in New York presenting an overview of the extensive and prolific Italian art panorama of the 1970s and the 1980s.While politics and economics underwent a profound transformation and culture transitioned from progressive modernism to the postmodernist weak thought, Italian art at the time elaborated old and new themes using the most disparate materials. Artists shifted from using industrial materials such as iron, coal, wood bundles, neon, mirrors, terracotta-common in Arte Povera (Mario Merz, Jannis Kounellis, Alighiero Boetti, Pierpaolo Calzolari, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Emilio Prini)-to dismantling installations and favoring paint and color-popular among Transavanguardia, Anacronisti and Nuovi Nuovi.

Taokulczycki_resonance_2015_1423694319.jpg

Vital Shift In Central Observer

Bosi Contemporary Gallery, NY,

BOSI Contemporary is pleased to present a two-person show featuring sculptures by Tao Kulczycki and the two new series of paintings by Ian Swanson, never before exhibited in New York. Both artists' works use different techniques and transform their materials into investigations of our humanity. While Tao Kulczycki uses a various assortment of altered objects in order to semi-embody his sculptures with symbols, Ian Swanson's paintings use direct and simple tools of representation to engage the viewer to interpret their inner intensity. The two artists use representation, objects and images we might immediately recognize, and combine them to create a feeling of unfamiliarity.   

Tao Kulczycki will be presenting a new series of aggregates; these fabricated ready-mades lend themselves towards a more abstract form where the object per se is transfigured in a way that is not immediately recognizable. The peculiarity of their assembly and modification find a stability not only symbolically but literally where the sculptures seem to balance. Often using a contrasting approach to materials, Kulczycki finds equilibrium between the natural and the fabricated/technological.

Donatello_1423605300.jpg

Sculpture in the Age of Donatello

Museum of Biblical Art, NY,

Twenty-three masterpieces of early Florentine Renaissance sculpturemost never seen outside Italy-will be exhibited at MOBIA as the centerpiece of the Museum's tenth anniversary season. MOBIA will be the sole world-wide venue for this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. These works-by Donatello, Brunelleschi, Nanni di Banco, Luca della Robbia and others-were made in the first decades of the fifteenth century for Florence Cathedral ("Il Duomo"), which was then in the last phase of its construction, and are figural complements to Brunelleschi's soaring dome, conveying an analogous sense of courage and human potential. Like the dome, these statues of prophets and saints express the spiritual tension of a faith-driven humanism destined to transform Western culture.

Lecture: Haunting And The Postcolonial Ethics Of The Gaze

Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò, NY,
A lecture by Rhiannon Noel Welch, Rutgers University   Italy's renowned poet, novelist, cultural theorist, and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini dedicated much of his cinematic production to exploring the archaic trace-the ontological, epistemological, and material remnants of a past that had resisted appropriation by consumerist postmodernity. If Derrida's notion of spectropoetics most aptly defines Pasolini's film theory and practice (Ricciardi 2003), scholars of the Italian postcolonial have used the spectral to describe the nature of collective memory, by calling attention to the return of Italy's colonial past in the figure of the contemporary immigrant. 'Eclipse,' 'evaporation,' and 'displacement' have likewise been used to describe the peculiar nature of Italian films about decolonization and contemporary immigration.

Emanuele Cisi in Concert

Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY,

Emanuele's encounter in 2010 with the italians but since long time New York based Joseph Lepore and Luca Santaniello, produce a simultaneous musical empathy and positive energy.

After few gigs in New York, they decide to afford a quick recording session, which brings to life a bunch of original tunes mostly signed by the leader, and creative renditions of beautiful standards.

Robust swing, interplay and spontaneous inventions are the main elements of their playng. A trio deeply rooted in the purest tradition of Jazz, with some truly original taste added. From Coltrane to Rollins through a subtle balance between grooves and melodies, but with a distinctive and original approach, thanks to their three strong personalities. Their recording debut, entitled "Where or When", has been released in 2013 by the american worldwide reknowned Maxjazz label.

Romacrepuscolare_1424981592.jpg

Lecture: Deconstructing Rome

Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò, NY,

A lecture by Federica Pedriali (University of Edinburgh)

This presentation uses Paolo Sorrentino's La grande bellezza (2013) and Rosi's Sacro Gra (2013) to frame a selective deconstruction of the Eternal City. Paragraphs include Genius of Rome (broadly based on a long view of the city's primary logistics: place and time), Grand Narratives (focusing on an evolving Roman mythology driven by polarised qualifiers and tags), Individual Trajectories (looking at the default impact made by Rome on travellers from different periods) and Hope of Rome: Resurrection vs Resurgence (tackling the city's role in and since the Risorgimento and particularly under fascism). An additional feature of this pacey main menu is a reading of contemporary Italy as both the home of the seven deadly sins and the positive collective survivor reaffirmed as part of Gabriele Salvatores' social filmItaly in a Day (2014). In a fitting methodological twist, the continuing anachronistic centrality of Rome in the latest age of global anxiety will also emerge from the application of key theoretical readings by contemporary thinkers and planners.

The Mafia Kills Only in Summer

Quad Cinema, NY,

CHARMING AND ENGROSSING! 

Italian TV star Pierfrancesco Diliberto finds unlikely comedy in the murderous criminal underworld of his native Sicily." -Hollywood Reporter

"REMARKABLE! TERRIFIC FEATURE DEBUT! Clever comedy and powerful message!" -Variety

Pierfrancesco Diliberto (a renowned TV host and political comedian, better known as Pif) wrote, directed, and stars in this subversive, irreverent feature debut about Arturo, a young boy whose obsession with the Mafia's casual presence in his city surpasses even his passion for Flora, the beautiful schoolmate who remains his main love interest until adulthood. Pif uses Arturo's unrequited love story as the vehicle to narrate the most tragic events in Italy's recent history, starting with the Cosa Nostra's criminal actions in Sicily in the '70s, which soon spread through the country (encompassing the barbaric murder of judges Falcone and Borsellino, an event that Pif handles with astounding boldness). Winner of the Audience Award at the Torino Film Festival, The Mafia Kills Only in Summer is a brave and intelligent dark comedy with a powerful message.

Our American Days

Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY,

A Documentary by Chiara Barbo e Andrea Magnani, produced by Pilgrim Film with the endorsement of the Embassy of Italy in the USA. Durata 35 minuti.

Through a collection of interviews and archival footage, Our American Days tells the story of life in Trieste during the Allied Military Government (1945-1954). The faces and stories of those who, at the time, were kids playing baseball in the outskirts of town, of young women who found jobs mumbling a few words of English, all drenched in the backdrop of the stars and stripes and Studebakers that cruised around the city. They are the voices of the protagonists of that era, in a Trieste seen in black and white that suddenly, after the war, found itself catapulted among the colors of America and Swing.

Le Marche. Come Discover The Heart Of Italian Beauty

Collina Italiana – Italian Language and Cultural Center, NY,

The only Italian region with a plural name, Le Marche are a little treasure still unknown to most foreigners. The New York Times and The Guardian enthusiastically described them as "the new Tuscany", but they have a strong geographical and cultural identity.   

Introduced by Dr. Mauro Peroni (Ph.D. in Philosophy), who will illustrate what makes Le Marche and their people so unique, the program (patronized by the regional Department of Culture) will include the screening of a documentary about the extraordinary historical-artistic heritage, and a wine/food tasting sponsored by Distilleria Varnelli and Cantine Fontezoppa

Bookhacking_1425515028.jpg

Magic Books - The Secret Art of Book Hacking

Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY,

Presented by Mariano Tomatis

We tune up engines and hack computers to improve their performances. What if we tuned up a book? Altering its structure and content, magical things may happen: volumes with movable parts, pages offering cinematic experiences, images appearing with a blow, non-linear structures to predict the future, pop-up magic shows...

"Magic Books" is an interactive exhibition retracing the story of the secret art of book hacking from Medieval times to our days: an unprecedented collection of design principles through which authors and publishers have activated magical powers out of plain paper. Created by the wonder injector Mariano Tomatis, the exhibition will open on Friday 13th March with a lecture show focused on the Italian influence of the art of book hacking - from the Venetian 17th century mind-reading books to Bruno Munari's magic shows on paper: the spectators will live the double experience of wonder before the magical effects produced by the books displayed and the Cartesian pleasure of discovering the ingenious mechanisms behind the curtains. If you love Books and Magic, this cross-over will amaze you!

Join us to celebrate the launch of Gil Fagiani's new book Stone Walls, published by Bordighera Press.

"Although we get glimpses into the perspective of the older poet in Gil Fagiani's latest book, STONE WALLS, it is the boy and adolescent poet that grabs us, as he zeroes in on the odd, the paradoxical, the grotesque, the irrevocably defamiliarized familiar. This evocative collection gives us front-row seats, and we feel the heat of the bodies on this stage of Italian American life captured with documentary precision and bitter tenderness."

Malastrana Film Series Presents: The Killer Must Kill Again

Anthology Film Archives, NY,

They are back in town! Armed with sharper knives, shinier leather gloves and even more deranged motives, "THE KILLER MUST KILL AGAIN! aka GIALLO FEVER Part 2" (20-29 at Anthology Film Archives) picks up where the first series left off, bringing 12 classic and under-screened Italian gialli to the Big Apple in rare 35mm prints. The term Giallo, literally "yellow" in Italian, originally referred to a series of crime novels with trademark yellow covers. Giallo, as a film genre of Italian thrillers that grew out of these pulp fictions starting in the mid 60s, became wildly popular in the 70s, leaving a legacy of films often overlooked but widely influential on filmmakers such as Brian De Palma, Quentin Tarantino, and Darren Aronofsky. Part 2 expands on this highly inventive genre, showcasing films by Dario Argento, Mario Bava, Lucio Fulci, Sergio Martino, Aldo Lado, Umberto Lenzi, Giulio Questi and Luigi Bazzoni.

Long Island Italian Americans: History, Heritage and Tradition, by Salvatore LaGumina

John D. Calandra Italian American Institute, NY,

For Italian immigrants and their descendants, moving from "the city" to Long Island was more than a change of address. It signaled that the family had achieved the American dream, and in turn, elements of Italian values and culture are visible all over the island.

Italians helped to build Long Island, whether as laborers or contractors. They brought their culinary traditions and opened markets and restaurants. Italian industrialization helped them thrive in fields as diverse as medicine politics, acting, winemaking and importing various products.

Join author Dr. Salvatore J. LaGumina as he offers a specially prepared power point presentation on the remarkable contributions and vibrant culture of Long Island Italian Americans.

Marie-Helene Bertino reads from 2 A.M. at the Cat’s Pajamas (Crown Publishers, 2014)

John D. Calandra Italian American Institute, NY,

Madeleine Altimari is a smart-mouthed aspiring jazz singer-and also nine-year-old girl. As she mourns the recent death of her mother and takes care of her grieving, hermetic father, she doesn't realize that on Christmas-Eve Eve she is about to have the most extraordinary day-and night-of her life. On the same day, her fifth-grade teacher Sarina Greene nervously anticipates a dinner party that will reunite her with old love and old friends. And across town at The Cat's Pajamas nightclub, owner Lorca discovers that his beloved haunt may have to close forever, unless someone can find a way to save it. 2 A.M. at the Cat's Pajamas tells the lively and engaging tale of how an unlikely cast of characters are thrown together over the course of one important night. As the stories race to the late-night climax, the paths of these searching souls bend and flex around one another, only to collide at the fateful hour.

Panel Discussion: Remembering the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire Find it

John D. Calandra Italian American Institute, NY,

On March 25, 1911, just before closing time, a fire broke out at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in Greenwich Village, killing 146 people, mostly young Italian and Jewish immigrant women. The tragedy devastated families and  traumatized communities. It also spurred labor leaders, public officials, and ordinary citizens to fight for workers' rights and safety. Over a hundred years later, the story of Triangle continues to inspire personal reflection and political activism. This group/gathering of scholars, writers, and artists will share various ways of commemorating the fire in the United States and Italy from historical and contemporary perspectives. Participants will include Edvige Giunta, Mary Anne Trasciatti, Ester Rizzo Licata, Marcella Bencivenni, Paola Corso, Annie Lanzillotto, LuLu LoLo, and Cassandra Casella.

Gaetano Pesce, One Of A Kind Iconic Works 1967-2015

Allouche Gallery, NY,

Since the 1960's, Gaetano Pesce has been challenging the dogma of traditional aesthetics by creating a multicisciplinary practice that embraces an art, architecture and design of expressiveness that is a commentary on reality, color, figurative representation and political commitment. Gaetano Pesce, One of a Kind Works, 1967-2015, exhibits over sixty works, some of which will be seen in New York for the very first time.

Alberto Biasi-Unlimited Perception

De Buck Gallery, NY,

NEW YORK, NY - De Buck Gallery is pleased to announce an upcoming exhibition by acclaimed Italian artist Alberto Biasi,entitled Unlimited Perception. The exhibition marks Biasi's debut at De Buck Gallery, and his first solo exhibition in New York since 1971. The exhibition will be on view from March 26 through May 2, with an opening reception to be held on April 16 from 6-8 PM, which the artist is scheduled to attend.

Alberto Biasi first came to prominence in 1960s Italy as a founding member of the Gruppo N, and is today hailed as a pioneer figure in the field of optical art - and more specifically, Italy's Arte Programmata movement. After the dissolution of Gruppo N in late 1964, Biasi embarked upon evolving the principles that were first developed as part of this collective artist group, and in earlier works like the Trame series, which dates from the late 1950s. Throughout his lengthy career, Biasi has sought to explore the visual possibilities of utilizing a mixture of traditional and untraditional materials - including PVC, mirrors, and light itself.

Premio New York 2014

Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY,

Margherita Moscardini Project Metropolitan Voids Agency

A huge rock is wedged between two buildings, 17-19 Bennett Avenue, Hudson Heights. It is the highest point of Manhattan, 81 meters over the sea level. The granite boulder is a superficial part of the island's bed-rock and is a void first of all. Because it avoided the grid, it detracts to Manhattan a portion of building area: it undercuts its congenital will of saturation, the city's vocation to gain as much profit as possible, inside the island's borders.  The boulder in Hudson Heights is subversive like a hill of bodies that occupy the public space in order to defend it; it is one of the permanent, temporary, underground or superficial urban voids, that the Metropolitan Voids Agency project will seek to collect and to unfold the potentialities.

Salon: Margherita Moscardini (in conversation with Pippo Ciorra and kari conte) and andrea nacciarriti

ISCP - International Studio and Curatorial Program , NY,

Margherita Moscardini will discuss the rapid transformation of Istanbul in relation to neoliberal building projects in the city. Her multimedia research project Istanbul City Hills On the Natural History of Dispersion and States of Aggregation looks at Istanbul's waste−particularly the glass debris leftover from the city's large-scale demolitions−as representative of the many complex socio-political conditions in the city. Moscardini will be in conversation with Kari Conte, Director of Programs and Exhibitions, ISCP.

Andrea Nacciarriti will present several works that explore issues of linguistics, space and perception, as well as social and anthropological concerns. Nacciarriti's research encompasses political, historical, and architectural contexts. During his ISCP residency, Nacciarriti worked on a new installation project that analyzed the concept and symbolism of storage in New York City, linking objects people need with human displacement.
