Marinetti, organized performative evenings as a method of extending his group’s influence. Greene and Head of Exhibition Lighting Mary Ann Hoag also describe the evocation of one of the highlighted avant-garde performances by Giacomo Balla in the Guggenheim’s multidisciplinary exhibition of Italian Futurism.
