The destruction, in 1927, of a number of plaster sculptures by Futurist artist Umberto Boccioni represented a great loss for avant-garde art. Now, using a wealth of photographic source material and ground-breaking 3D printing techniques, artists Matt Smith and Anders Råden have recreated three of the artist’s iconic striding figures. This exciting and innovative display enables visitors to ‘see’ these lost masterpieces for the first time.

Achille Perilli (b.1927) first rose to prominence as a member of Rome's Forma 1 group, which was active from 1947 to 1951. Its artists were the first in post-war Italy to take an interest in abstraction, opposing their work to the realist and symbolist art that they rejected as decadent. This small selection of paintings focuses on the artist's later works, dating from the 1960s to the 1980s, depicting angular and decentralized structures.
