Giorgio Morandi Open House
On the occasion of Frieze New York and NYCxDESIGN, CIMA is pleased to offer a free open house on Saturday May 7th from 10am to 5pm. RSVP is required.
Come enjoy the GIORGIO MORANDI exhibition, in CIMAs exquisite and intimate loft setting. CIMAs installation, its third, focuses on Morandis rarely seen works from the 1930s the decade when the artist reached full artistic maturity and developed his distinctive pictorial language. These works until now have remained relatively little known outside of Italy. Featuring some 40 paintings, etchings, and drawings drawn from major public and private collections, the installation marks the first time in decades that many of these works have been on view in the US. A few works by contemporary artists Tacita Dean, Wolfgang Laib,Joel Meyerowitz, and Matthias Schaller are exhibited as well, offering another means of approaching Morandi.
CIMA is conceived more as a home, in order to offer an intimate art viewing experience, different from what you might find in a typical museum or gallery. On our regular Friday and Saturday visits, the groups are limited to 15-20 people and you are invited to have an espresso, talk with our Fellows, and linger afterward. Our exhibitions last the entire academic year, from October to June, to encourage repeat visits and prolonged study, to see these works in different lights and different times of day. Check out our website, www.italianmodernart.org, to book a visit on another day or become a member!
