For their 2022 season exhibition, The Center for Italian Modern Art presents Staging Injustice: Italian Art 1880-1917, a group show with work from 15 artists exploring Italian painting and sculpture during 1880-1917, especially during World War I. The show is organized around four themes —migration, labor, protest, and social injustice— that resonate in Italy, the United States, and other countries today. The show aims to create historical connections between the United States today and a similar time of social upheaval in Italy’s history. Staging Injustice: Italian Art 1880-1917 features around 20 pieces from Italian museums and private collections with photographs and images from press at the time.

This is the first show in the United States for artists Ambrogio Alciati, Adriana Bisi Fabbri, Antonio Carminati, Achille D'Orsi, Raffaello Gambogi, Giuseppe Mentessi, and Luigi Nono. Other featured artists include Giacomo Balla, Antonio Mancini, Angelo Morbelli, Giuseppe Pellizza and Medardo Rosso.
