Future Shock: Guggenheim’s Gorgeous Retrospective on Futurism
Championing a radical and utopian vision, the artists profiled in the Guggenheim’s new exhibit Italian Futurism, 1909–1944: Reconstructing the Universe brought the concept of “total works of art” to new heights, especially when it came to objects and interior design, according to organizer and museum senior curator Vivian Greene. From the bedroom Giacomo Balla designed for his daughter in 1914 to the art houses (Casa d'Arte) he and other designers like Fortunto Depero created across Italy, forward-thinking design was applied to every aspect of life.

It provides an overview of her main projects from London to Hong Kong and in the United Arab Emirates and features commentaries by Tom Krens of the Guggenheim Foundation, architect Patrick Schumacher, photographer Hélène Binet, publisher Francesco Dal Co and stylist Karl Lagerfeld.
