Italy in NY Calendar
“Carol Rama: Antibodies” is the first New York museum survey of the work of Italian artist Carol Rama (b. 1918, Turin, Italy–d. 2015, Turin, Italy) and the largest presentation of her work in the US to date.
While Rama has been largely overlooked in contemporary art discourses, her work has proven prescient and influential for many artists working today, attaining cult status and attracting renewed interest in recent years. Rama’s exhibition at the New Museum will bring together over one hundred of her paintings, objects, and works on paper, highlighting her consistent fascination with the representation of the body.
"Over twenty years ago, William Papaleo moved to Naples to practice the art he had learned in the U.S. A third-generation U.S. American with ancestors from Italy, Papaleo is diﬀerent from most Italian American artists who use Italy to set up a sense of the past and reconnect to it through travel. Their art, more oﬅen than not focuses on the family and their own reactions to retiring to the home of their ancestors. What you ﬁnd in Papaleo’s art is something new, something all other Italian Americans have not dealt with, and that is the role of the immigrant in today’s Italy. It is through art like this work, that we can we reach beyond the real, and sometime we even achieve the impossible."

The Queens Museum is proud to host the first solo show in an American museum by Italian artist Marinella Senatore. Piazza Universale / Social Stages, curated by Matteo Lucchetti, presents a range of important recent projects created in Spain, France, Italy and the US between 2009 and today. Piazza universale—“the universal square”—refers to the exquisitely Italian concept of the piazza, a public space par excellence where different communities meet, and as an embodiment of an ideal, universal space where future communities can be envisioned collaboratively.
