Event description

Description

In the arts, the term diaspora refers to artists who have migrated from one part of the world to another, or whose ancestors did. Their diverse experiences influence their work, which explores themes such as dual identity, memory, folklore, faith, dislocation, and migration. The artists create alternative narratives and challenge the structures of the established art world.

Italianità, which translates to “Italian-ness,” showcases the complex nature of the Italian Diaspora, and examines the beliefs, traditions, and defining characteristics connected to this movement.

Among the works featured in Italianità is Joseph Stella’s monumental 1935 work “Smoke Stacks,” which will be on view for the first time in California. Rare drawings by architect Paolo Soleri, the founder of the experimental Arizona town of Arcosanti, will be shown alongside the work of McCarthy-era blacklisted artist Ralph Fasanella.

Never before has the work of this group of artists been shown within the confines of a single exhibition or institution
