Futurism at the
Guggenheim: A Roundtable Discussion

 
Wednesday, February 26, 5-7 pm
The Italian Academy, 3rd Floor Library
Columbia University
1161 Amsterdam Avenue
New York, NY
 
Following up on the opening of the Guggenheim's landmark
show Futurism, 1909-1944: Reconstructing the Universe, the Columbia University Seminar in Modern Italian
Studies is hosting a roundtable discussion on the exhibit and Futurism more
broadly. Futurism continues to be of interest because of its wide-ranging
contributions to modern culture, which the exhibit highlights in its
multidisciplinary chronicle of the movement, but also because of its social
and political views. The members of our panel bring a broad array of expertise
to the roundtable, and as such we expect an expansive dialogue on the many
facets of Futurism.We will
reserve time at the end for audience questions and comments.

Professor of Art History, Lehman College and the CUNY Graduate Center
