Two opportunities to encounter Italian art at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection with parallel displays running until April 15th dedicated to some of the most important Italian artists of the twentieth century.
In one wing of the temporary exhibition galleries is the show curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, Postwar. Italian Protagonists, featuring artworks by Lucio Fontana, Piero Dorazio, Enrico Castellani, Paolo Scheggi and Rodolfo Aricò. The exhibition unfolds chronologically, showcasing the experimentation of each artist as, departing from the work of Lucio Fontana, these new generations developed a personal language at a critical moment of their artistic practice between the 60s and 70s.
The adjacent galleries host Gianni Mattioli Collection. Early 20th century Italian art, where in addition to the celebrated Mattioli Collection, which has been on long-term loan to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection since 1997, the exhibition presents numerous other works by Italian artists of the early 20th century, such as Medardo Rosso, Morandi, de Chirico, Boccioni, Balla, Carrà and Severini. Serving as a kind of historic prologue to the postwar art exhibited parallel, major works of Italian Futurism and Metaphysical painting testify to the vitality of Italian art in the second decade of the 20thcentury.
