In this episode of Radio Art Center, which aired January 23, 2016, the Des Moines Art Center's Director of Marketing and PR Christine Doolittle sits down with Amy N. Worthen, curator of prints and drawings, to talk about the new exhibition, GRAAAFICAAA ITAAALIANAAA.
The exhibition explores some of Italy’s contributions to—and its ambivalence about—art on paper from the early to mid-20th-century. Filippo Marinetti’s Les Mots en Liberté Futuristes (1919), a Futurist typography attack on The Past, contrasts with Adolfo de Carolis’ Symbolist woodcuts in Gabrielle D’Annunzio’s wartime meditation Notturno (1922), a work that evokes the highest Renaissance traditions of book design and printing.
