Passage is an artist’s vision of the movement of immigrants. Yorgos Giotsas uses materials of the earth to bring a tactile feel to his work, thus engaging us in the journey. His images of immigrants in New York City in the early 1900s could be our grandparents from Magna Grecia (Southern Italy). Yet he does not stop there as he moves us visually through the passage, with heart-wrenching yet hopeful images, of immigrants today landing in Sicily. Sponsored by the Italian American Museum/Consulate General of Greece in New York.
