Stanze, reinventing Renaissance rooms

Three prominent contemporary urban artists fuse the past with the present by reinventing the Renaissance interior of Palazzo caproni, seat of the Temple University Gallery in Rome.

The names of the three female artists, Alice Pasquini, Gio Pistone and Pax Paloscia, are readily associated with Italy's street art scene, whose modern edge they juxtapose with historic tradition in the Sala delle Nozze, Sala dell’Astrologia and the studiolo.

Curated by art historian Jessica Stewart, the exhibition sees each artist assigned a room and a specific theme: Pasquini interprets the origins of modern collecting, Pistone examines the concepts of power and influence, while Paloscia incorporates elements of traditional portraiture alongside works that evoke memory.
