The Piranesi effect

Tuesday 18 February 2014 - Saturday 24 May 2014

This exhibition at the Ian Potter Museum of Art explores the ongoing role of Piranesi’s work in the practice of Australian contemporary artists. View works by Mira Gojak, Peter Robinson, Constanze Zikos, Simon Terrill, Rosemary Laing, Michael Graf and Andrew Hazewinkel, Rick Amor and Jan Senbergs. These 21st-century artists will jolt us into seeing Piranesi in a new way, while the work of Piranesi will enrich our reaction to the contemporary works.
