ART: “Vogliamo Tutto: Postwar Italian Art” at The Hammer – July 11

Date 07.06.2017

The Hammer and the Italian Cultural Institute Los Angeles invite you to experience a new exhibit, “Vogliamo Tutto: Postwar Italian Art.” Italian art after World War II experienced a remarkable renaissance as artists began experimenting with traditional forms and styles in provocative ways – from the Arte Povera movement in which everyday materials replaced the stones and precious metals of traditional sculpture, to radical innovations in design.
Participate in a conversation with Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art curator Marianna Vecellio, New Museum artistic director Massimiliano Gioni, UCLA Professor of Italian and gender studies Lucia Re, art historian Jaleh Mansoor, and moderator and Hammer chief curator Connie Butler as they discuss the dynamic contexts that surround the work of art.
