Lecture – June 21, 2016 at 12.30 pm
Speakers: Claudia Salaris and Francisco Brugnoli
"Believing to discover an island and find a continent." Claudia Salaris, historian and scholar of the avant-garde, sums up with this phrase the research work and the acquisition of futurists materials started by Pablo Echaurren in the late seventies. An exciting and surprising research that over time has allowed to create the most complete and prestigious collection of books, newspapers and manifestos of Futurism. Taking advantage of this constantly evolving collection, Claudia Salaris has published numerous studies on the movement founded by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, and for some years the Fondazione Echaurren Salaris has created a publishing project that provides for the publication of the entire collection in five monographic volumes also translated in English. After Futurist magazines, volume Futurisms in the world has been printed, a real map, composed of forty nations and full of notes and highly original images, which sheds light on the relationship between the first italian avant-garde and international currents, represented by groups and individual personalities, who adopted the term Futurism or they were strongly affected.

In the lecture, attended by Francisco Brugnoli, director of the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, and Claudia Salaris, it will address the Futurism in all its aspects, emphasizing the innovative force that swept not only the arts but also influenced the social, costume and morality. The overview of the world futurisms will conclude with an analysis of South American countries.

Exhibition – June 22 - August 14, 2016
From June 22 to August 14 will be open to the public an exhibition of 36 manifestos owned by the Fondazione Echaurren Salaris, 15 manifestos and some materials from the chilean Vicente Huidobro Foundation and in the call room Iconoclast II a series of collages created by Pablo Echaurren inspired by Futurism.
