Artists and Experimental Cinema in Italy 1960–1970 - Hammer Museum

On the occasion of the Hammer Museum exhibit Marisa Merz: The Sky is a Great Space this selection of extremely rare short films, including Il Mostro Verde, features Merz’s Living Sculpture, revealing the exciting, eclectic collaborations among painters, poets, directors, and theater actors in 1960s Italy. Films by Tonino De Bernardi and Paolo Menzio and artists such as Ugo Nespolo and Luca Maria Patella highlight an adventurous underground cinema influenced by Arte Povera in Turin, the experimental films of Cooperative Cinema Indipendente in Rome, and the American avant-garde and independent film scene.

Organized by the IIC in collaboration with the Archivio Nazionale Cinema d’Impresa, CSC-Cineteca Nazionale and in conjunction with the Hammer Museum.

An additional program of films will be screened on July 13 and  July 20, 2017 at 6:30 PM at the Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Los Angeles.
