Four American Academy in Rome Fellows, responding to the restrictions and limits of the COVID-19 era, are producing sculptures that will be installed up and down the Janiculum Hill, accessible to AAR residents and passersby. Animating the pine groves of the Villa Doria-Pamphilij Park and the portico of Bramante’s Tempietto, as well as the courtyards of the Academy’s main building, these site-specific works invite viewers to re-engage with familiar spaces and explore new vistas. This balance of stasis and movement is perfectly suited to a spring of tentatively hopeful reopenings in Rome.
Participating artists: Katy Barkan, 2021 Rome Prize in Architecture*; Francesca Berni, 2021 Enel Italian Fellow in Architecture, Urban Design, and Landscape Architecture; Sara Enrico, 2021 Fondazione Sviluppo e Crescita CRT Italian Fellow in Visual Arts; and Corinna Gosmaro, 2020 Fondazione Sviluppo e Crescita CRT Italian Fellow in Visual Arts.
Streetscapes is curated by Elizabeth Rodini, AAR Andrew Heiskell Arts Director, and organized by Lexi Eberspacher, AAR Programs Associate for the Arts.
Streetscapes is made possible by the Adele Chatfield-Taylor and John Guare Fund for the Arts.
*For reasons of Covid safety, Barkan’s work is not accessible to the public.
