A Tumultuous Assembly: Visual Poems of the Italian Futurists

The Getty Research Institute presents A Tumultuous Assembly: Visual Poems of the Italian Futurists, at the Getty Center from August 1, 2006 - January 7, 2007. The exhibition focuses on the Futurists' move to subvert poetic convention in favor of parole in libertà (words in freedom). The first exhibition to focus solely on visual poems, and to offer translations of these works, A Tumultuous Assembly features approximately 50 manuscripts, drawings, rare books, and journals drawn from the special collections of the Research Library at the Getty Research Institute (GRI).
