LONDON.- This spring, London’s Estorick Collection hosts a major exhibition by Giacomo Balla (1871-1958) one of the undisputed masters of modern Italian art. Balla was one of the five signatories of Futurism’s initial painting manifestos of 1910 and a pioneering figure of European Modernism. Giacomo Balla: Designing the Future runs at the Estorick Collection from 5 April until 25 June 2017.

The exhibition comprises 116 works loaned by the Biagiotti Cigna Collection – one of the largest collections of Balla’s works in the world. Assembled by the renowned Italian fashion designer Laura Biagiotti and her husband Gianni Cigna, the full collection of over 300 works represents the artist’s entire oeuvre. It encompasses figurative painting and drawing, as well as abstraction and applied art and many of Balla’s fashion-related designs. Examples of all these styles will be included in the exhibition, alongside actual items of Futurist furniture and clothing.

This major show of striking and rarely-seen pieces has been curated by Fabio Benzi, a leading authority on the artist who has worked closely with the Fondazione Biagiotti Cigna for many years. Prof. Benzi has also collaborated with the Estorick Collection before, having curated the 2015 exhibition Fausto Pirandello 1899-1975.
