London attractions: Learn about Futurism at the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art

Published: Friday 5th of October 2012

Art fans seeking things to do in London will enjoy a trip to the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, which is currently hosting a Futurist exhibition.

The Bruno Munari: My Futurist Past, which is running from September 19th until December 23rd, explores the talent of an artist described as "one of the most complex, creative and multifaceted figures of twentieth-century Italian art".

Visitors perusing the works on display will trace Munari's career from its early years until the post-war period in which he influenced a new generation of artists and designers.

Munari was born in Milan 1907 and never moved from the city. The roots of his style were definitively Futurist, and he worked across a range of forms including paintings, photomontage, sculpture, graphics, film and art theory.

However, he did not restrict his influences to just Futurism, with his works also nodding towards Constructivism, Dada and Surrealism.
