L’universo futurista: 1909-1936 [The Universe of Futurism]
March 23 – July 31, 2010
Fundación PROA di Buenos Aires
Curated by Gabriella Belli
From April 1st, nothing will rest idly at the museum. Nothing will be destined for the grave. Nothing will die beneath the surface of a book. From April, 1st, Proa will present The universe of futurism, a travel trough the Art systems that the most distinguished Italian avant-garde movement was able to achieve from 1909 to 1936. Futuristic painting. Futuristic literature. Futuristic cinema. Futuristic music. Futuristic architecture. Futuristic dance, cooking and fashion. Organized together with the Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto (MART) and under the curatorship of Gabriella Belli, The futuristic universe will include an special section on Filippo Tomasso Marinetti’s, father of the futuristic movement, travels to Brazil and Argentina. A series of associated activities will also take place, willing to bring back the gist of the artistic adventure that, more than any other of its contemporaries, imposed a unique way of producing Art and conceiving Time. A style that, as one of the manifestos highlights, lives “deprived from the past and free from tradition”. In other words, forever new. Fast as the machines. Noisy and industrial. Uncomfortable and impotent. Futuristic.
