The Influence of Italian Post-War and Contemporary Art
 
When people hear “Italian art” generally their minds conjure up images by Michelangelo or Da Vinci. There’s no doubting the impact of the Renaissance, but that period often overshadows what came afterwards and Italy never stopped producing great art. In this presentation and discussion, Wendy Blazier, former senior curator of the Boca Raton Museum of Art, and art critic Jenifer Mangione Vogt will survey the landscape of significant post-war and contemporary Italian artists and their enduring impact on the global art world.   They will focus primarily on recent major exhibits in New York and South Florida featuring works by artists Sandro Chia, Valerio Adami, Maurizio Cattelan and Alighiero Boetti.
