Futurist Photography

On the occasion of its twenty-fifth anniversary, the Carla Sozzani Gallery will present the exhibition Fotografia Futurista (Futuristic Photography). As an art critic and historian of the cultural scene of the 1920’s with a special focus on Futurism, Giovanni Lista has curated here a show of wide interest.
Over one hundred original photographs from both private collections and National Trusts will be on view from June 10th to November 1st. Taken from the Fratelli Alinari, the Museum of Cinema and Photography in Turin, the Museum of Photography in Florence, the Gabinetto Fotografico Nazionale in Rome (ICCDMiBACT), the MART Museum of Trento and Rovereto, the Touring Club Italiano, the exhibition explores, through the arc of half a century, the way in which the futurists took possession of the photographic language as a medium to capture the pulse of life in this new century, and to transmute natural reality into a process of active creation and evolution.
Divided into four sections – from the destruction of the mimicry of nature, to the innovative research of the Twenties and Thirties – the exhibition includes the formalized photodynamism of the Bragaglia' brothers, many portraits of Depero, photomontages by Tato, and even photo-performance. In tune with the best European avant-garde revolutions, this show explores liberal and eccentric tastes, the hyperbole of grand visions and ideas well outside of the canons of bourgeois society.
Opening on Wednesday June 10th, 2015, from from 6.00 pm to 9.00 pm. The exhibition catalogue, curated by Giovanni Lista and published by Carla Sozzani Editore, will brought together the photographic research and the new visual codes enabling to better understand the Futurists and their enduring influence.
