Grey Art Gallery/NYU will open its doors to an exhibition portraying life in Italy through the lens of photographers before, during and after World War II in NeoRealismo: The New Image in Italy, 1932-1960.
Featuring 175 photographs by over 60 Italian artists, NeoRealismo displays the photos with the original publications in which they circulated ~ illustrated magazines, photobooks, and exhibition catalogues. The exhibition also includes film excerpts alongside related movie posters.
The exhibition complements the Keith de Lellis Gallery exhibition, Neorealismo: Nuova Fotografia Italiana, A Group Exhibition of Vintage Photographs opening on September 5, The New Beginning for Italian Photography: 1945-1965, at Howard Greenberg Gallery opening September 12, and Postwar Italian Photographs from the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Also look forward to what’s next at the NYU gallery, 80WSE ~ right next door.
