A major exhibition by Giacomo Balla (1871-1958), one of the undisputed masters of modern Italian art. Balla was one of the five signatories of Futurism’s initial painting manifestos of 1910 and a pioneering figure of European Modernism. The exhibition comprises 116 works loaned by the the Biagiotti Cigna Collection – one of the largest collections of Balla’s works in the world. Assembled by the renowned Italian fashion designer Laura Biagiotti and her husband Gianni Cigna, the full collection of over 200 works represents the artist’s entire oeuvre. It encompasses figurative painting and drawing, as well as abstraction and applied art and many of Balla’s fashion-related designs. Examples of all these styles will be included in the exhibition, alongside actual items of Futurist furniture and clothing.
