CIMA, the Center for Italian Modern Art is a 501c3 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 academic year CIMA presents in its spacious loft in SoHo an installation examining the work of modern Italian artists rarely exhibited in the U.S. 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's new exhibition From Depero to Rotella: Italian commercial posters between advertising and art will be on view February 16 - June 10, 2023.
