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.
