Italian Futurism, 1909‑44: Reconstructing the Universe

Futurism — a predominantly Italian venture — sought to glorify the rapidly advancing technologies of the early 20th century. From Marinetti’s Futurist manifesto in 1909 through to the end of World War II, Italian Futurism, 1909-1944 attempts to chart this avant-garde movement. The exhibition has been four years in the making and includes over 350 works in the form of paintings and sculptures, but also literature, design, music and performance, which will almost entirely take over the Guggenheim’s spaces for the next six months.
