Had a great evening at a pivate tour of the Guggenheim's show Italian Futurism 1909-1944: Reconstructing the Universe, led by Silvia Barisione, curator at the Wolfsonian. The exhibit highlights the concept of total work of art, which stood at the core of the Movement. I particularly found the design objects surprising and fresh. While they are presented as a form expression of Art Deco, I found them more in the spirit of German Expressionism which was contemporary to Italian Futurism. This spectacular dining room set was designed by Futurist artist Geraldo Dottori in the 30s and was brought to the show from a private collection.
