Join us for a UK exclusive screening of FORMIDABLE BOCCIONI, a 54 minute documentary on the life and art of Umberto Boccioni.

This documentary pays homage to and reconstructs the artistic journey of Umberto Boccioni. The tape of the story rewinds in a flash and we are in 1927, when his sculptures were reduced to dust by Piero da Verona. Raptus of madness or a way to prevent postmortem speculation? The documentary attempts to answer this question.

A film by Eleonora Zamparutti & Piero Muscarà
Directed by Franco Rado

Doors open at 18.30
Film screening, preceded by a short introduction to the documentary at 19.00

Standard Admission £10 / Estorick Collection Members & Students £8
