Italian Words at the Guggenheim (Futurismo)
They also had art at the Guggenheim's just-closed Futurismo exhibit (including works by Umberto Boccioni, whom I love) but I found myself drawn to anything that showed Italian words.
The Guggenheim is such a wonderful exhibit space. You can look back at what you've seen from a distance and see the work in a different way.
There were lots of books and posters and manifestos with Italian words and I was in heaven. There must be something about seeing words in a language you love that lights up the happiness part of your brain. It winds up being like a little festish.
