by Katharine A Keller

Contours of an Invisible City envisions Rome as a multiverse of sorts – an ancient metropolis teeming with phantasms and histories. Pairing guidebooks from the 16th-20th centuries with a new series of photographs by non-fiction photographer Kieran Dodds, the exhibition invites reflection on the palimpsest of invisible cities that are Rome.

Curated by Christian Gonzalez Ho, 2nd-year PhD student in art history.
