Italics: Italian Art between Tradition and Revolution 1968–2008 is on view at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago from November 14, 2009 – February 14, 2010. This exhibition, copresented by the MCA and the Palazzo Grassi, Venice, explores Italian art and creativity from the late 1960s to the present. The major survey of Italian contemporary art features work by more than 75 Italian artists working in various media.
A catalogue was published in conjunction with the exhibition under the general editorship of guest curator Francesco Bonami. Published by Electa and with graphic design by Christoph Radl, the volume contains 200 color illustrations and covers more than 150 works by artists who have been – and continue to be – leading figures in Italian art as it has developed over the last forty years.
