Futurism at the Guggenheim: A Roundtable Discussion
Wednesday, February 26, 5-7 pm
The Italian Academy, 3rd Floor Library
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.
Confirmed participants include:
Giovanna Ginex, Independent Art Historian
Romy Golan, Professor of Art History, Lehman College and the CUNY Graduate Center
Vivien Greene, Chief Curator for Futurism, 1909-1944: Reconstructing the Universe, Guggenheim Museum
