Archipenko and the Italian Avant Garde




This summer, the Estorick Collection presents an exploration of the relationship between Ukrainian-born American artist Alexander Archipenko (1887- 1964) and the masters of Italian modern art. The show examines the role of Archipenko in the creation of a modernist Italian tradition, and the impact his work had on the development of Italian sculpture in the 20th century.

This ambitious exhibition aims to introduce the British public to an alternative history of modernism by retracing the many moments of exchange and confrontation between Archipenko, one of the twentieth century’s most influential sculptors, and leading figures from the Italian avant garde. Archipenko’s works will be shown alongside those of Carlo Carrà, Giorgio de Chirico, Amedeo Modigliani, Enrico Prampolini, Mino Rosso, Gino Severini, Mario Sironi, Thayaht (Ernesto Michahelles) and Ardengo Soffici.
