Milton Gendel

Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò, together with the American Academy in Rome, presents a selection of photographs by American photographer Milton Gendel (b. 1918), drawn from the recent retrospective organized with the City of Rome and held jointly at the Museo Carlo Bilotti - Aranciera di Villa Borghese and at the American Academy in Rome. 

Some of Gendel's images are influenced by the neo-realist aesthetic pioneered by Italian film makers in the late 1940s, while others are infused with wry playfulness, demonstrating important affinities with strains of Surrealist photography. This exhibit contains photographs taken in Italy between 1946 and 1996. 

AT 6:00PM: 
In conjunction with the opening, Casa Italiana will host a round-table discussion about Gendel's career and the artistic exchanges between Italy and the United States captured in his photographs.
