The Center for Italian Modern Art (CIMA) is an exhibition and research center established in 2013 to promote public appreciation and advance the study of modern and contemporary Italian art in the United States and internationally.

Each academic year CIMA presents in its spacious SoHo loft an installation examining the work of modern Italian artists rarely exhibited in the U.S. These installations bring the art of inspiring masters into dialogue with contemporary artists, illustrating its impact and ongoing resonance today. The exhibitions serve as the theme for CIMA’s fellowship program, which aims to promote new scholarship and dialogue in the field through the support of emerging young scholars from around the world.

CIMA’s annual exhibition runs October through June. CIMA is closed in the summer.

Open hours are 1pm to 6pm, Fridays and Saturdays. Visitors to CIMAduring open hours can view the exhibition on their own or are welcome to join the 2pm tour. Guided exhibition tours are conducted twice a day  by a CIMA Fellow (11am and 2pm, by reservation). Complimentary espresso is served to guests 10 minutes before the tour begins.
