While our galleries are closed, we want to use this moment of dislocation as an opportunity to bring people together through our shared interest and love for Italian art. Over the coming weeks, we will release new digitally formatted programs, highlighting uplifting, inspirational artworks and members of our creative community.
As a precautionary measure during this time of increased vigilance, Magazzino Italian Art will be closing its galleries beginning on March 12, 2020 until further notice.
The Appraisers Association of America will present Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu, Co-founders of Magazzino Italian Art Foundation, with the 2020 Award for Excellence in the Arts at their 16th Annual Award Luncheon on April 15, 2020 in New York City. The keynote address will be given by renowned art historian and theoretician Germano Celant.
Magazzino Italian Art Foundation announces key appointments of Dr. Tenley Bick as its Scholar-in-Residence, the first American to hold this position, and Dr. Melissa Dunn as the institution’s inaugural Research Center Coordinator. In their respective roles, Bick and Dunn will advance the museum’s commitment to enhancing the appreciation of Italian postwar and contemporary art and to creating new opportunities for scholarly research and critical assessment.
Congratulations to Nancy Olnick, one of the Co-founders of Magazzino Italina Art Foundation, who received the 2019 Trailblazer Award for Economic Development Leaders from the Putnam County Business Council on October 29, 2019!
Magazzino Italian Art Foundation is currently looking for non-professional dance enthusiasts from the Middle and Lower Hudson Valley to participate in the Marinella Senatore and The School of Narrative Dance Performance on November 16, 2019.
It is with very heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Gianfranco Gorgoni (Bomba 1941 – New York 2019), a renowned Italian photographer who was best known as a documentarian.
It is with very heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Marisa Merz (1926-2019). The sole woman associated with the Arte Povera movement, Merz was a trailblazer amongst her male colleagues. She was a integral contributor to Arte Povera, but her work and approach also significantly diverged from the movement and its spirit, making hers a vital practice to examine and one that helps us more completely tell the story of Arte Povera.
Red Regatta is an independent public art project created by artist Melissa McGill that will activate Venice’s lagoon and canals with large-scale regattas of traditional vela al terzo sailboats hoisted with hand-painted red sails. Unfolding in multiple parts from May through November 2019 over the duration of the 58th Venice Biennale, the Red Regatta convenes more than two hundred and fifty Venetian partners working closely with the artist, ranging from local sailors and artisans to art students, to present an unprecedented spectacle that calls awareness to the central issues that face Venice and its residents today: the displacement of local inhabitants due to the imminent threat of climate change and sea level rise and mass tourism to the region.
Happy New Year from all of us at Magazzino Italian Art! We wish all of our friends near and far a wonderful, happy and healthy 2019.
