Magazzino Italian Art and the Italian Cultural Institute in New York are pleased to announce Young Italians, a group exhibition featuring twelve Italian Contemporary artists, curated by Ilaria Bernardi. Join us for the opening of the exhibition on September 25, 2018 from 6:00 - 8:00pm. Young Italians was conceived as a 50th anniversary tribute to the show of the same name, curated by Alan Solomon, which took place at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston and the Jewish Museum in New York in 1968, featuring the work of twelve young Italian artists of that time. The exhibition at the Italian Cultural Institute, which will run from September 25 until November 1, 2018, will feature twelve Italian artists, under the age of 40, all of whom were either born, grew up in or currently work in Italy. Also included are Italian artists who have moved to New York, in order to examine the extent to which Italian culture is present in their work and the interplay between exact location and displacement.
