Center For Italian Modern Art
We are a new nonprofit organization based in SoHo, founded in 2013 by the Milanese art historian and collector Laura Mattioli. Our mission is to promote the study and appreciation of 20th-century Italian art in the US and internationally—through an annual installation of works by artists often little known or rarely seen in the United States. The Center offers also a fellowship program; and a variety of public programming.
Our column features contributions from CIMA's staff and its fellows in residence. In addition to offering insights on CIMA's research activity, Slow Art is a view on the New York art scene through the eyes of expert scholars who are for the first time coming into contact with the vibrant creativity that the Big Apple is known for.
