To support “Methodologies of Exchange: MoMA’s Twentieth-Century Italian Art Exhibition (1949),” a program that examines the Museum of Modern Art’s 1949 exhibition Twentieth-Century Italian Art and how this shaped American artists’ views of Italian modernism. To study those involved in the MoMA show and those directly affected by its consequences, the program is divided into two main sections: the first half looking at the reception of Italian art and artists in the United States, and the second half focused on American artists.
