Art History


Giorgio Di Domenico’s doctoral research focuses on the reception of Surrealism in Italy in the 1960s and 1970s. He attended the Scuola Normale Superiore and the University of
Pisa for his BA and MA, defending theses on Jannis Kounellis’s Rose Paintings and the Italian artists’ magazine «La Città di Riga», to which he also devoted a forthcoming monograph. He interned at La Galleria Nazionale in Rome and the Italian Cultural Institute in New York. In spring 2022, he was a visiting student at the Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò at New York University. Starting February 2023, he is a fellow of the Center for Italian Modern Art in New York. His publications include essays on the work of Jannis Kounellis («Studi di Memofonte», 2018; «Paragone», 2022), the practice of Alberto Burri in the 1970s («Annali della Scuola Normale», 2021), and the relationship between Burri and Robert Rauschenberg in 1950s New York («Prospettiva», 2022). More recently, Giorgio started to engage in contemporary art criticism: he occasionally writes in «Antinomie» and «Flash Art».
