Environments and Counter Environments: “Italy: The New Domestic Landscape,” MoMA 1972

The Graham Foundation is pleased to present Environments and Counter Environments. “Italy: the New Domestic Landscape,” MoMA 1972 curated by Peter Lang, Luca Molinari, and Mark Wasiuta. Under the direction and curation of Emilio Ambasz the legendary 1972 MoMA show commissioned a series of experimental domestic “environments” and a series of film and media projects by the most vibrant Italian architects and designers of the period: Mario Bellini; Alberto Rosselli; Marco Zanuso and Richard Sapper; Joe Colombo; Gae Aulenti; Ettore Sottsass Jr.; Gaetano Pesce; Archizoom; Superstudio; Ugo La Pietra; Gruppo Strum; and 9999. Environments and Counter Environments brings together for first time since 1972 these important films and media projects and returns to the original exhibition, not as a reconstruction, but as an analytical project that attempts to reassess the visionary possibilities of architecture and design.
