Futurism & futurist artists
Umberto Boccioni, 'Elasticity ' (1912)

The modern art movement of Futurism was Italian and founded in 1909 and started to diminish in 1918 just as World War 1 was starting. The aim of Futurism was to object to traditional conventionalism and to wage war against the art of the 19th Century. The 20th Centaury was a new time when people were starting to prosper, health and hygiene was getting more sophisticated and people were living longer. The world was changing but art wasn't. Futurism was about getting art to evolve and become more sophisticated and deviate from the ways of the traditional artists.

The modern art movement of Futurism involved major artists such as Filippo Marinetti, Giacomo Balla and Umberto Boccioni. These artists waged war with the art world in one of the most vivid and confronting modern art movements to ever take place.

In Italy at this time the government was seen as corrupt and had ulterior motives which didn't fit that of the people's ideals. The Futurists demanded change and picked up on the faults of the corrupted government. The Futurists wanted reform!

A poet named Filippo Marinetti in 1909 wrote the first futurist manifesto. The manifest was a criticism and rejection of the modern art's effort to portray artwork that reflected what was crippling Italy, The corrupt government!

The manifesto spoke out it's genuine concern for justice and spoke about radical change and reform.

In 1911, the futurist modern art movement gathered at their first major showing which was held in Milan. Boccioni, Russolo and Carra collectively exhibited over 50 works of modern art/contemporary art. This exhibition was the moulding that bonded the futurist modern/contemporary artists together.
