Mind’s Eye: Italian Futurism, 1909–1944

Monday, March 3, 2014 @ 6:30 pm

We invite visitors who are blind or who have low vision to join us for gallery tours and discussions of Italian Futurism, 1909–1944: Reconstructing the Universe. The first comprehensive overview of Italian Futurism to be presented in the United States, this multidisciplinary exhibition examines the historical sweep of the movement from its inception with F. T. Marinetti’s Futurist manifesto in 1909 through its demise at the end of World War II. Presenting over 360 works executed between 1909 and 1944, the chronological exhibition encompasses not only painting and sculpture, but also architecture, design, ceramics, fashion, film, photography, advertising, free-form poetry, publications, music, theater, and performance. All programs are conducted through Verbal Description and touch.

Free, but space is limited; advance RSVP is required by Monday, February 24. To RSVP, call 212 360 4355 or or e-mail access@guggenheim.org.
