UNTYING “THE KNOT”: THE STATE OF POSTWAR ITALIAN ART HISTORY TODAY

The Center for Italian Modern Art is pleased to host Untying ‘The Knot': The State of Postwar Italian Art History Today, a two-day conference organized by Sharon Hecker and Marin R. Sullivan. Held in the days leading up to the 103rd meeting of the College Art Association, and co-sponsored by the Italian Art Society, this symposium seeks to evaluate the current state of the field and highlight alternative methodologies for future inquiry. It will bring together leading Italian, American, Canadian, and British scholars publishing in this expanding field. 2015 marks the thirty-year anniversary of curator Germano Celant’s The Knot, the 1985 landmark exhibition held at PS1 in New York, which introduced contemporary Italian art to American audiences. Yet despite the interest it generated in its time, few scholars in the United States considered postwar Italian art as a subject for study in the decades since. Today, thanks to recent exhibitions and publications, scholars on both sides of the Atlantic are increasingly turning their attention to Italian art created after World War II. With the passage of half a century, European and American scholars alike are historicizing and scrutinizing the complex dichotomies that defined Italy during the period: from its dialogue with artistic and craft traditions of the past within the context of rapid industrialization, to the so-called “economic miracle” and the effects of American consumerism, to the mechanics of Italy’s desire to establish a particular kind of Italian Modernism in art, film, and design that would also become internationally influential.
