Art historian Raffaele Bedarida hosts a celebration of Italian artist and cultural organizer Corrado Cagli. Forced to leave Italy because of racial persecution, Cagli redefined his role as a public artist and his understanding of identity through the experience of exile. With live music and archival display, follow Cagli’s remarkable life as he became a US military artist who immortalized the horrors of Buchenwald and collaborated with George Balanchine on his carnivalesque New York City Ballet production, Il Magnifico. Cantori New York and Artistic Director Mark Shapiro perform music by Vittorio Rieti.

Part of: Migrations: The Making of America
