Crisp, Fiona and Wrigley, Richard (2008) Ruination : photographs of Rome. [Show/Exhibition]

Full text not available from this repository.


Group exhibition with catalogue curated by Richard Wrigley. Rome has been a compelling subject for photographers since the medium's earliest days. Images of Rome originally served as forms of truthful witness to the artistic splendours of the past. Once valued as replications of antique architecture and sculpture in situ, it is now their extraordinary power as images - their technical and artistic subtlety - which allows them to transcend their function as homages to the city. Ruination brings together a series of arresting images of Rome produced by photographers of the mid-nineteenth and late-twentieth centuries. Contemporary artists include Olivio Barbieri, Richard Billingham, Fiona Crisp and John Riddy.
