Past Futurism Now

Futurism became one of the most important Italian modern art movements of the early 20th century. Committed to new technology and mobility, its members wanted to change culture and demonstrate the advancements of modern life. The artists worked in traditional media such as painting and sculpture, in styles influenced by Post-Impressionism. They were interested in embracing popular social subjects, media and new technologies to communicate their ideas as many artists do today.
