FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT BETWEEN USA AND ITALY
from March 28th to July 1st, 2018
curated by Jennifer Gray
This exhibition is presented by the Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library, Columbia University; in collaboration with Miriam & Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery, Columbia University.
The Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli presents FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT BETWEEN USA AND ITALY, curated by Jennifer Gray. Through photographs, objects, catalogues, lithographs and original designs, this exhibition explores Wright’s ideas about organic architecture from his first journey to Italy in 1910 to his last visit in 1951, emphasising his engagement with the Italian architectural discourse, urban planning, and landscapes. The exhibition is articulated into sections exploring the different building typologies – houses, museums, offices and skyscrapers – where such iconic works like Fallingwater and the Guggenheim Museum in New York are showcased alongside lesser-known projects.
The exhibition design is by Marco Palmieri, catalogue published by Corraini.
