he force behind a profound transformation of the landscape and our collective lifestyle, the automobile is the focus of an exhibition exploring various moments in the history of 20th-century art.
From Futurist myth-making about automobiles hurtling through space to the fascination for their aesthetics in paintings from the 1920s and 1930s, the exhibition reaches the present day with works by artists who have appropriated the image of the automobile, expressing interest or criticism.
The exhibition includes a selection of photographs, illustrations, advertisements and other printed materials from Mart Archivio del ’900.
