PSGV: Art and Politics-The Case of Corrado Cagli with Penn State Laureate John Champagne

February 21 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The problematic and contradictory relationship between the art of Italian painter, sculptor and muralist Corrado Cagli and the fascist government that supported him will be explored in a presentation by Penn State Laureate John Champagne. Champagne, a professor of English at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, uses Cagli’s career as a starting point for engaging his audience in a discussion of art and the contemporary resurgence of fascism at home and abroad. “Do artists have a responsibility to politics?” he asks. “What is our obligation to art of the past, and what does history suggest to us about the role art plays in world politics today?”
