Giacomo Balla - Futurist Modernity


Some 200 works by Giacomo Balla, including oils, pastels, watercolors, assemblages and sculptures have been loaned by collections across the world for the exhibition. Focusing on the 30 most important years in the career of Turin-born, Rome-based Giacomo Balla – from 1900 to 1929, when he moved away from the portrait paintings that had brought him fame and wealth into the world of futurism.

This is the first Balla retrospective ever held in Milan and the first large show dedicated to the artist in Italy for almost 40 years. The show focuses on Balla’s radically experimental development into Furturism, which extolled the virtues of technology, and presented abstract images of light, speed and movement.
