About

Drawing on never before seen works from the private collection and new acquisitions, we will present the story of Italian artists who were subverting traditional methods of making art within the changing culture of Postwar Italy. This will be a notable exhibition for South Florida giving students and visitors an opportunity to explore Italian Art and Culture at the turn of the 20th century. Featuring works by Alighiero Boetti, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Giulio Paolini, Michelangelo Pistoletto and Mario Merz.
