Celebrated Italian photographer Marco Anelli captures the construction of Magazzino Italian Art, a new Hudson Valley institution dedicated to postwar and contemporary Italian art.
The transformation and expansion of a 1960s factory building in Cold Spring, NY to house an extraordinary art collection has been documented by Marco Anelli, Magazzino Italian Art's first artist in residence. From initial excavations to the installation of artworks in the galleries, Anelli traces Spanish architect Miguel Quismondo's plan to create a space that bridges the artistic legacy of the Hudson Valley with the demands of ambitious contemporary artworks. Several essays and examples of founders Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu's stunning Italian art collection enliven Anelli's series of landscape photographs and portraits.
Exhibition Schedule: Italian Cultural Institute of New York: October 4-November 2, 2017
