Center for Italian Modern Art

The Center for Italian Modern Art (CIMA) is a public nonprofit exhibition and research center established in 2013 in New York City to promote public appreciation and advance the study of modern and contemporary Italian art in the United States and internationally. Each year from October through June, CIMA presents in its spacious loft in SoHo an installation examining the work of modern Italian artists rarely exhibited in the U.S. These installations bring the art of inspiring masters into dialogue with contemporary artists, illustrating its impact and ongoing resonance today. The exhibitions serve as the theme for CIMA’s fellowship program, which aims to promote new scholarship and dialogue in the field through the support of emerging young scholars from around the world. CIMA is open for public visits and fellow-led tours on Fridays and Saturdays. Throughout its season, CIMA holds a variety of public programs including readings, lectures, drawing nights, performances, and concerts that shed further light on modern Italian art and culture.
