Photographs from today's Rome

February 10th - March 8th 2014


This exhibition of contemporary photography by visual artist Robert Richardson turns the lens not on the monuments of Rome but on the tourists and locals who people the city's winding streets. The familiar sites - and sights - of Rome become a background for a kaleidoscope of interactions and memory-making.

Robert Richardson is a visual artist who works in several media: concrete poetry, typography, graphics, installations and video installations. In recent years, he has concentrated on exhibitions of photographs. He has graphics in collections of the British Museum and the Australian National Gallery, and in 2012 was included in Artists' Postcards: A Compendium (Jeremy Cooper 2012, Reaktion Books).
