"Confluences: Intersectional Visions of Italy"

The Georgetown University Art Galleries and the Italian Cultural Institute of Washington are thrilled to present "Confluences: Intersectional Visions of Italy." The exhibition presents for the first time in the United States a group of artists addressing social justice issues connected to notions of Italy—which is far more complex than the single cultural, political, or social space it is commonly thought to be. 

Artists: Dafne Boggeri, Valeria Cherchi, Giulia Crispiani, Maria Adele Del Vecchio, Binta Diaw, Alessandra Ferrini, Muna Mussie 

These contemporary artists counter such familiar fictions through projects that consider nuances of individual and collective experience across a variety of topics, such as colonialism, societal amnesia, gender-based biases, and civic activism. 

This exhibition will be on view in the de la Cruz and Spagnuolo Art Galleries from January 26th, 2024 - April 7th, 2024. The project is curated by Ilaria Conti and organized by the Italian Cultural Institute of Washington in collaboration with Georgetown University Art Galleries. You are invited to a private curator-led tour of the exhibition on Friday, January 26th at 5 pm. An Opening Reception from 6-8 pm that is free and open to the public will follow. Visitors should RSVP for the Reception here
