Artist Talk: Immigrants and Diasporic Italians

Angelica Bergamini, Gianluca Bianchino, Diana González Gandolfi

Among the artists featured in the Calandra Institute’s exhibit A Legacy of Making are immigrants born and raised in Italy and Argentina. Their inclusion alters and expands our understanding of who constitutes “Italian Americans.” How do these artists’ transnational experiences and statuses inform their work and their position within the art world? Three artists will dialogue about their individual and artist journeys as part of the exhibit’s final public presentation.
