Observing these photographs, the perceptions of touch and vision are one and the same. The choice of a particular location and that of wanting to narrate it, implies exposing oneself, defining a perspective from a personal observation point. It is from this point of view, which our interest and attention is captured. What we observe: shapes from the Padania plains to American city glimpses and landscapes, the value of which is given by the reflection from within. These photographs depict an oblique progression.
The Medici’s Painter: Carlo Dolci and 17th-Century Florence is the first exhibition in America devoted to the luminous and meticulously rendered paintings and drawings of Italian artist Carlo Dolci (1616–1687). It provides an unprecedented opportunity to study the life and oeuvre of 17th-century Florence’s most important painter, whose reverence for detail, brilliant palette, and seemingly enameled surfaces earned the favor of powerful Medici patronage.
“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.

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."
