Event Details

Magazzino Italian Art, the nonprofit museum and research center, is dedicated to advancing scholarship and public appreciation of postwar and contemporary Italian art in the United States. Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu were inspired to share their lifelong love and passion for Italian art with their community. The first pavilion, a 20,000-square-foot structure designed by Spanish architect Miguel Quismondo, opened its doors in 2017, creating a new cultural hub and community resource within the Hudson. Magazzino’s second building opened in September 2023 as a unique opportunity to reunite Miguel Quismondo with his mentor and world-renowned architect Alberto Campo Baeza. The design of the Robert Olnick Pavilion, in the same spirit as the existing building, returns to materials that echo the logical and humble philosophies of Arte Povera.
