The Center for Italian Modern Art in NYC Now Open

Located in Soho, The Center for Italian Modern Art (CIMA) in New York City recently opened its doors and is welcoming visitors to explore its opportunities and works. The center is currently exhibiting an installation of the work of Italian artist Fortunato Depero (1892–1960). The installation coincides with the Guggenheim's exhibition, Italian Futurism, 1909–1944: Reconstructing the Universe, which runs until September 1, 2014.

The CIMA's mission is to promote scholarly research and public appreciation of modern and contemporary Italian art throughout the United States and around the world. Through research fellowships, annual exhibition installations, and cultural programming, CIMA advocates for a deeper awareness of 20th-century Italian art and its legacy today.


By bringing into dialogue the work of Italian modern artists with contemporary artists from around the world, CIMA’s installations raise awareness of the legacy and lasting influence of 20th-century Italian art and aim to spur increased institutional attention on the significant artistic movements that occurred during this time.

Presented in the foundation’s intimately scaled gallery space, the installations foster close analysis, encourage direct and durational interactions with the works of art on view, and offer opportunities for a diverse range of programming. The installations also provide the basis and core theme for CIMA’s annual fellowships.
