Review of the Pompidou’s “Le Futurisme a Paris”

“Steel, Speed, Fever: Futurism’s Centennial Celebrated in Paris”  by Jorg von Uthmann (Bloomberg, October 29, 2008)

Compared with their inflammatory rhetoric, “Le Futurisme a Paris – Une Avant-garde Explosive,” the show at the Pompidou Center, is amazingly tame. By reducing the rabble-rousers to a mere school of painters, the organizers have swept the hype and hoopla, the group’s most conspicuous trademark, under the carpet.

If anyone has seen this show and would like to contribute their thoughts to this site, please contact me.
