This exhibition features photography shot in and around Rome, Italy by Visual & Performing Arts faculty member, John Garton in 2017. Having lived in Italy and returning frequently to conduct art history research, Professor Garton offers images of time counted in millennia and in minutes. Holding the lens of the straniero, or foreigner, Garton records daily images of light, sometimes falling on Emperor Hadrians villa and other times on shiny Fiats, modern routines, and the rituals of conversation.
Curated, installed, and organized by Professor Garton with Professor of Studio Art, Elli Crocker, and students in ARTS 296 Gallery Culture and Practice.
