Young Italians

25-09-2018 - 01-11-2018


Italian Cultural Institute, New York, USA

'Young Italians', is a group exhibition featuring works by twelve contemporary Italian artists - a.o. Luca Monterastelli, curated by Ilaria Bernardi, and jointly organized by the Italian Cultural Institute of New York and Magazzino Italian Art.
'Young Italians' was conceived as a 50th anniversary tribute to the show of the same name, which took place at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston and the Jewish Museum in New York in 1968, featuring the work of twelve young Italian artists of that time.
The current exhibition seeks to support contemporary Italian artists, make them known in the United States, and consider what is unique about contemporary Italian Art today. It also allows for parallels to be drawn between what the contemporary Italian art scene looked like in 1968 and what it looks like now in 2018, offering some ideas about the new directions among younger artists, and shedding light on the unique features and common denominators of the work of young Italian artists today.
