Umberto Boccioni: Recreating the Lost Sculptures


Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

In 1927, a collection of plaster and mixed-media sculptures by Italian Futurist Umberto Boccioni were destroyed. Through the magical powers of 3D printing techniques, contemporary artists Matt Smith and Anders Rådén have essentially resurrected four of these long lost works. Along with showing the artworks themselves, the exhibition explains how the artists filled in any gaps in the information available to get a complete sculpture.
