Medardo Rosso Exhibit Tour & Reception

Please join us for a reception and tour of the Center for Italian Modern Art’s (CIMA) exhibition of the works of Medardo Rosso. Date: Thursday, June 25th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Location: 421 Broome Street, between Crosby and Lafayette Streets.

CIMA presents a major installation of sculpture, drawing, and experimental photography by acclaimed modernist Medardo Rosso (1858 – 1928), revealing the masterful range of an artist known chiefly for his three-dimensional work. Anchored by a major loan from the Museo Medardo Rosso in Barzio, Italy, the presentation explores the broad range of materials—from gesso, wax, and bronze, to photography and drawing—in which Rosso worked. The installation marks the first time that a comprehensive group of drawings by Rosso will be on view together. “Medardo Rosso” is the second presentation mounted by the foundation.

The New York Chapter of the Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums is funding a project to exhibit Rosso works at the Vatican Modern Museum.
