Opening: March 1st, 6pm – 8pm

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION:
In his description of 18th century Rome, Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) intentionally blurred distinctions between past and present by including the unsettling presence of ancient ruins with scenes of contemporary urban life.  Many years later, when Rocky Balboa ran up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and turned to face the Parkway, he entered a similar realm, this time one that blurred distinctions between an idealized classical past and a modern automotive present.  Inspired by Piranesi’s trans-chronological approach eight artist/architects will investigate his notions for understanding, depicting, and possibly changing 21st century Philadelphia.
