Italian Cultural Institute of New York
Magazzino Italian Art and the Italian Cultural Institute in New York presented Young Italians, a group exhibition featuring twelve Italian Contemporary artists, curated by Ilaria Bernardi. 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 was on view from September 25 until November 1, 2018, featured twelve Italian artists, under the age of 40, all of whom were either born, grew up in or currently work in Italy. Also included were 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.

The show at the Garrison Art Center marked the first collaboration between the two institutions in an effort to promote cultural exchange and partnership in the Hudson Valley arts community.
Bagnoli, Bianchi, and Salvadori represent the generation of artists following the Arte Povera group, keeping the conceptual foundation of their predecessors while delving into the relationship between body and soul, material and ephemeral.

Italian Cultural Institute of New York
"Marco Anelli: Building Magazzino" is the title of Italian artist Marco Anelli’s commissioned photographic project documenting Magazzino Italian Art’s construction process in its entirety—from its conceptualization in 2014 to its transformation from an industrial building into a warehouse dedicated to an extraordinary collection of Italian Art.
A homonymous exhibition—organized by Magazzino Italian Art with the Italian Cultural Institute of New York and curated by Magazzino’s Director Vittorio Calabrese—displayed 24 large-format color photographs selected from the artist’s latest oeuvre, including 11 portraits, three of which had almost-real-life-size dimensions.
Magazzino Italian Art
Magazzino Italian Art’s inaugural display draws from the Olnick Spanu collection of Italian Art. This select group of works pays tribute to Margherita Stein’s pivotal role as a pioneer of the Arte Povera movement.
