About Italian Modern Art
Managing Editor: Nicola Lucchi, PhD
CIMA’s online journal, Italian Modern Art, supports the organization’s mission to promote the advancement of new scholarship in the field of twentieth-century Italian art.
Each year, CIMA organizes an exhibition that serves as the main research topic for its international fellowship program and programmatic activities. At the heart of these activities are CIMA’s signature Study Days, lively multi-session scholarly events, organized by the season’s fellows, that aim to foster interdisciplinary and transnational dialogue. Unlike conventional conferences, CIMA’s Study Days provide a rare opportunity to discuss a movement or an artist’s career while in the midst of numerous relevant artworks. During these events, CIMA’s fellows are joined by established scholars, curators, and other invited experts, forging an atmosphere of academic debate as well as informal exchange. Study Days participants come to CIMA from a variety of backgrounds and careers.
Italian Modern Art is dedicated to publishing the research that stems from these activities, including papers, archival documents, bibliographies, and other material that inspires discussion and illuminates possible areas for further investigation. The journal advances CIMA’s aim of making new perspectives on twentieth-century Italian art available to audiences worldwide. In responding to the need for accessible and clear writing on this chapter of art history, Italian Modern Art mirrors CIMA’s educational goals of bringing to the fore the work of under-recognized Italian modern masters and promoting the works of renowned as well as emerging scholars in an accessible format. Furthermore, it complements CIMA’s robust public programming by creating a platform for texts that utilize a range of methodological approaches with the intention of serving a diverse community of learners and scholars.
The staff and editors of the first edition of the journal would like to express their gratitude to The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation for its support of this endeavor.Back to Top
