16 Dec-2 April. The third installment in the exhibition cycle Conversation Piece which charts the presence of Italian and foreign artists currently living in Rome, or with a particular attachment to the city, focusing on the artistic contribution made by the city’s foreign academies and cultural institutes.
As with previous editions, the artists have been invited to gain inspiration from the nature of objects and their specific use in their artistic practice, reflecting on a statement by American artist Jasper Johns from the early 1960s: “Take an object / Do something to it / Do something else to it.”
Curated by Marcello Smarrelli, the exhibition features work by British artist Jonathan Baldock, Neapolitan artist Piero Golia, Magali Reus (Dutch Fellow at the American Academy in Rome), and Berlin-based Claudia Wieser (Fellow at the Accademia Tedesca di Roma Casa Baldi).
