Silent Revolutions: Italian Drawings from the Twentieth Century

Fall 2020
Menil Drawing Institute

This exhibition of drawings from the Collezione Ramo in Milan is the first large-scale survey of twentieth-century Italian drawings ever mounted in the United States. Highlighting the essential and multifaceted role that drawing played during a remarkably creative period of Italian art, the show features some 70 drawings by artists such as Umberto Boccioni, Giorgio de Chirico, Lucio Fontana, Alighiero Boetti, Jannis Kounellis, Maria Lai, and Carol Rama. The works on view will be augmented with several drawings from the Menil’s own collection.

Co-organized by Edouard Kopp, John R. Eckel, Jr. Foundation Chief Curator, Menil Drawing Institute, and Irina Zucca Alessandrelli, Curator, Collezione Ramo.
