Giacomo Balla, Abstract Speed + Sound (Velocità astratta + rumore), 1913–14
Painting, sculpture, architecture, design, ceramics, fashion, film, photography, advertising, free-form poetry, publications, music, theater and performance—Italian Futurism encompassed all of these and more, as one of the most dynamic, controversial and unpredictable movements in early modern art. More so than their Cubist contemporaries in Paris, the artists of Futurism celebrated the revolutionary furor and breakneck technological pace of life in the nascent 20th century, embracing its contradictions and its frequent descents into violence. This expansive overview is the first undertaking of its kind in the United States, and should prove an eye-opener.
