Ideas for Sculpture: Projects and drawings for the Sculputre Park in Bassano in Teverina (an exhibition curated by Anna Maria Panzera and Shara Wasserman, with the collaboration of Lucilla Catania). September 13-30, 2023.
Temple University Rome was very pleased to present the exhibition Ideas for Sculpture, a display of projects and drawings for the sculptures installed in the Sculture in Campo Sculpture Park in Bassano in Teverina. The Park, created by Lucilla Catania in 2017, is an important cultural and artistic venue, fully recognized by the Regione Lazio political administration, and figures prominently among the several similar gardens in Lazio. The Park’s mission is to make a significant and transformative impact on the landscape. As the website, https://scultureincampo.it/en/ states, the Park actively responds to the European Cultural Program, which foresees among the most important activities the sustainable promotion of the cultural patrimony, to better integration and well being, to create an ecosystem able to support the artists and the professionals involved in culture and creativity, and to encourage international culture.
From this year, the Sculture in Campo has a presence in Rome at the studio of Daniela Perego, where artists, critics, curators and art lovers meet for discussion. During one of these encounters, and in a flash of inspiration, we recognized the great potential of displaying the steps that precede the creation and presentation of the work, focusing on the preliminary drawings, models, sketches, written word. Curated by Anna Maria Panzera, a member of the Park’s curatorial commission, and the important support of Lucilla Catania, the idea of the exhibition emerged, to reveal the artist’s move out of the studio space and into the environment, in relationship with nature and with the public.
Mapping a Friendship: Joyce Kozloff and Simonetta Moro: Temple University Rome presented Mapping a Friendship on Tuesday May 18 at 7:00pm CET/1:00pm EST. Mapping and friendship are the key words that define the relationship of these artists, who met at the American Academy in Rome in 1999, during their respective residencies. Born on different continents and separated by a generation, they found a common ground as artists and as friends, and this relationship has persisted throughout the years.
Politically active since the 1970s with the feminist art movement, by the 1990s Joyce Kozloff addressed geopolitical issues, in public commissions and private works through books, paintings, and sculptures. The works are complex iterations of fabricated maps; the places are hybrids, woven together from memories and imagination as the artist explores a world view of nostalgia and her concerns for the barbarity of aggression and expansion. This exhibition presents a selection of new works by the artist.
Painting, drawing and printmaking are at the root of Simonetta Moro’s practice; mapping is her conceptual search. Her works layer past and present, detail and overview, real and imaginary, memory and observation, in an exploration of the politics and poetics of places, to evoke the idea of a journey.
We thank the American Academy in Rome for their support.
Mission (Im)possible: Disegno Interno with Stephen Talasnik, TYL '79: Temple University Rome announced the launch of Mission(Im)Possible, a virtual exhibition series devoted to established artists who received their BFA/MFA from the Tyler School of Art and Architecture of Temple University, and who attended Temple University Rome or who have a relationship with Rome. We inaugurated with NY-based artist Stephen Talasnik, and his exhibition Disegno Interno, on March 23, 2021, at 2:00pm ET/7:00pm CET. The artist was present on zoom and discussed his work in conversation with curator Shara Wasserman.
Stephen Talasnik (TYL ‘79) participated in the Graduate Painting Program at Temple University Rome in 1977/78, and his connection with Temple University continued through the 1980s, when he taught at Tyler School of Art, and at Temple University Japan. During his MA studies at the Temple University Rome campus, he continued this study of drawing, this time through architecture, as he explored and sketched the monuments. Stephen later spent 3 years teaching at Temple University Japan in Tokyo, a time he refers to as his exclusive drawing period. He travelled extensively throughout South East Asia, studied indigenous buildings and their natural building materials. This eventually translated into large-scale ephemeral projects where architecture, engineering, sculpture and drawing fuse together to create marvelous hand-woven constructions that recall invented cities and otherworldly designs, set in evocative landscapes. A dialogue with Japan and Rome continues to inform his work.
For the Mission Impossible exhibition, Talasnik presented three installations, two independent series of sculptures, and a selection of drawings created during lockdown.
The exhibition was introduced by a video interview between Stephen Talasnik and Prof. Jeffrey Kingston, Director of Asian Studies at TUJ and a friend of the artist since 1987.
Crafting a Narrative with Renato Ferraro: The Gallery of Art of Temple University Rome presented Crafting a Narrative: The Teatrini of Renato Ferraro, an exhibition of handmade theatre boxes by the masterful craftsman Renato Ferraro. A film documentary Ezio Frigerio 50 anni di teatro con Giorgio Strehler, produced by Renato Ferraro for the exhibition of the same title, and commissioned for the Triennale di Milano in 2016 was screened.
Renato Ferraro studied stage design at the Accademia Albertina di Belle Arti, and architecture at the University of Torino, which he interrupted after earning a placement at the prestigious Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome, conferring his degree in 1971 in film direction studying under Roberto Rossellini. His professional life saw him work as a film director with the RAI Italian Television Station for over 40 years, and during his spare time his love for marionette theaters was expressed in the creation of his teatrini, elaborate, detailed and poetic renderings of stages, with scenes, props and characters. Following his retirement, Ferraro continued full time to create these delightful hand crafted masterpieces, along with ceramic objects illustrating a similar passion for historical, mythological, theatrical subjects, “for his playful enjoyment.”
This exhibition featured 12 teatrini, to include scenes from the Italian Commedia dell’Arte, period views of Italian cities, a capriccio inspired by the Italian 16th century architect Andrea Palladio, and an homage to Gustav Wunderwald, the early twentieth century German painter and theatre set designer, among others. Installed at eye level, the theatre boxes invite the spectator to explore Renato Ferraro’s world of fantasy and narrative.
Imagery as Activism: Blacks in Italy and the Art of Taking Space: ountless distant and recent injustices and atrocities against the Black psyche and form that have been documented, filmed and disseminated to the world have given rise to the largest civil rights movement in history. As multicultural groups continue to gather globally and take to the streets in support of “Black Lives Matter”, Italy, too, must reconcile with its complicated history with race. Art holds a powerful and unique role in highlighting and changing antiquated and erroneous images and narratives that are often attributed and assigned to Black people in Italian art, literature, and society. What role does the art children see in books have in the awakening, evolution, and progress of racial dynamics and justice in today’s Italian society?
Curated by Tamara Pizzolini with accompanying oil paintings by Elena Tommasi Ferroni, this exhibitions proves that what we’ve all heard could quite possibly be true: a picture is worth more than a thousand words. It is high time for the stories that are told, both verbally and visually, to reflect all of the beauty, brilliance and bounty that the Black experience and form truly is.
Tres Patrias: Born in Cuba, raised in the United States, and resident in Italy, the show traces the artist Anita Guerra’s personal voyage across three homelands, through paintings, photographs, drawings, aerograms, prints and video. From an idyllic childhood in Havana, Cuba, to the Castro Revolution and her ensuing escape to the United States, where she was placed in an orphanage until she was reunited with her parents in Philadelphia, to her studies of art at Temple University’s prestigious Tyler School of Art, and finally to Rome, Guerra shares her memories with courage and tenderness. She weaves her story with that of her father, the modernist architect Juan Ignacio Guerra, moving from memories to research, returning to the sites of her childhood over the course of several years.
Torn, Layered, and in Decay: The Gallery of Art of Temple University Rome is presented the exhibition William Graebner, Torn, Layered, and in Decay, which opened on the virtual platform Kunstmatrix, on Tuesday September 29 at 7:00pm CEST. The artist was present at the inauguration, and led the audience through the show with a conversation about his work.

The Lives of Everyone: Photographs from the Standard Oil (New Jersey) Collection: A Virtual Photographic Exhibition Tour and Conversation in partnership with the NYU Alumni Club of Italy.
A Word That Troubles: The Gallery of Art, Temple University Rome, presented the exhibition A Word that Troubles, curated by Gaia Bobò. The show features the works of Alessia Armeni, Edoardo Aruta, Emanuele Becheri, Francesco Carone, Alessandra Draghi, Filipe Lippe, Agnieszka Mastalerz and Benyamin Zolfaghari, and poses a dialogue between Italian and international artists from different generations. The exhibition proposes to investigate the interaction between the verbal and the visual in the context of contemporary artistic production, focusing on the capacity of the word to complicate the image: to enter into the image, thus expanding its limitations, possibilities and contradictions, and demonstrating its ability to open new ways of seeing.
2008/2020: The Gallery of Art, Temple University Rome, presented 2008/2020: Gretchen Bacheller, Benny Fountain, Ai Krasner, Fabian Lopez, Ryan Parker, an exhibition of five Alumni in the Visual Arts from Tyler School of Art and Architecture, Temple University (Philadelphia, PA), who spent their 2007-2008 academic year at the Rome Campus. The artists were present and led the audience through the exhibition, comment on their work and on their life-changing experience. This exhibition is part of our ongoing series featuring TUR Alumni who spent a year in Rome, studying with the local faculty and learning about Italian artistic culture, and then returning to Philadelphia to complete their education. The years since receiving their MFA has seen them become distinguished artists and educators; exhibiting in the US and abroad; and bringing their memories of this early formative experience into their work. The five artists in this exhibition came to Rome in the Fall of 2007, and remained through the Spring of 2008. They forged a lasting friendship based on their shared experience and artistic exchange. At the end of their stay, they exhibited in a group exhibition Tutti eccetto Gus… . They are reunited here for the first time with a selection of works from the 2008 exhibition, along with a representative synthesis of their artistic production over the years.
Spring 2020 Student Exhibition: From Rome to Home: The Gallery of Art was pleased to present the Spring 2020 Student Exhibition featuring the works of our visual arts and architecture students at Temple University Rome. Although Spring 2020 was a very unusual semester, with students starting in Rome in January and completing their semester in the US due to Covid-19, we were very proud as a Faculty and as a University to share the creativity and positivity that they communicated with their works. Viewers were invited to take the time to explore each work, and to enjoy the variety of artistic styles and mediums.
The Night of Total Calm: Introducing Temple University Rome’s first ever virtual 3D exhibition, MFA candidate in Printmaking at Temple University’s Tyler school of Art, Gilberto López Elías completed a year at Temple Rome. This body of work is the culmination of his Roman experience.
Tiny Biennale VII edizione: Theme 2020: Tiny Biennale, a curation by Susan Moore, began exhibition on Tuesday, February 18 at the Gallery of Art at Temple University Rome. The Tiny Biennale is a collection of miniature works no bigger than 8 cm that is arranged throughout the gallery space. This year’s theme for the exhibition was “2020” and anyone was welcome to contribute to the show. Each piece of art was available for sale for a donation of 50 Euro to support the Temple Rome scholarship fund.
When Green Turns Red: This exhibition showcased a sound installation, icons on wood, and a continuous ink drawing by Roman artist Roberta Sanges. A self-declared “artisan,” Sanges spends a great deal of time in her studio, keeping her doors open to the public, eager to have the attention of the local community. This direct communication with the people allows her to carry on a type of cultural workshop, collaborating with children in the realization of street-art installations, informal workshops in mosaic, painting and furniture restyling.
The exhibition presented a wide selection of her work, from the endless drawing, created by pouring black ink, and then bleach, onto paper to pull out the spontaneous images, to the icons, where pure pigments, and fire, allow the natural images to emerge from the raw wood. January 28–February 12, 2020.
Fall 2019 Student Exhibition: The exhibition showcases the many wonderful works created by our talented visual arts and architecture students during their semester at Temple University Rome. December 12–19, 2019.
A Jug, a Glove and Things That Are Still: The Gallery of Art, Temple University Rome, presented A Jug, A Glove and Things That Are Still, an exhibition of the works of Cynthia Bassan, Rena Effend, and Patricia Glee Smith. The show pairs three women artists who focus their work on the careful investigation of the world around them, through the shared qualities of the mediums of painting and photography. Linked by their interest in the observation of the real, the quotidian, the monumental, the three artists elevate their subjects to a realm beyond our everyday, in search of an emotion or state of mind, realized by means of the basics of art making: subject, light, color, the artists’ eye. For Bassan, the camera allows her to transfer the image onto the canvas, to capture the minute details of the source material. Through pure oil paint, and her generous eye, the artist shows the magic and poetry in everyday reality. Although the camera does not have a place in the works of Patricia Smith, who paints directly from life, we might identify a connection to the manipulation of the photographic image in the clear lines, the dramatic light effects, the moment captured in time. Rena Effendi, a photographer, does the opposite. Following a period of study in painting, she took her first photograph in 2001. The painterly use of light gives the photographs the look of the Dutch masters. Her work is a collection of stories, of people and places, of small village life in her native Azerbijan, gathered during years of travels, taken with the camera but with the emotional connection that defies the interruption of the camera lens. Linked by their interest in the observation of the real, the quotidian, the unmonumental, the three artists take their subjects and elevate them to a realm beyond our everyday, in search of an emotion or state of mind. This is realized by means of the basics of art making: subject, light, color, and the artists’ eye.
Patricia Smith was born in Illinois (USA), and received a BFA from the University of Illinois. She came to Italy to study etching at the Scuola del Libro in Urbino. She was a contributing artist for the New Yorker Magazine; an expedition artist in Italy, Turkey, Yemen and Tibet; arts director of the National Museum of Oriental Arts in Rome; a fellow of the MacDowell Foundation for writers and artists and of the Ragdale Foundation, USA. She has exhibited extensively in Italy and internationally since 1977 and her works are featured in private and public collections.
Cynthia Bassan is a Rome-based painter. Classical studies and a degree in literature and foreign languages are the basis of her formal studies. A self-taught, she has devoted herself to painting from a very young age, learning her technique from the classical painters. The still life and in particular the portrait, often of her daughters, are her subjects. She has exhibited in Italy, and her works are in several private collections.
Rena Effendi was born in Baku, Azerbaijan. Concerned with small village life in her native country, through an observation of people’s intimate connection to their homes and to spaces that link them to their history and traditions. She has produced two books, Pipe Dreams: A Chronicle of Lives along the Pipeline in 2009 and Liquid Land in 2013; she is the recipient of several international photography awards; her work has been exhibited worldwide including at the 52nd Venice Biennale, the 2009 Istanbul Biennial, Istanbul Museum of Modern Art, Saatchi Gallery in London, Breda Museum in the Netherlands and other venues. Effendi is a finalist in the prestigious 2019 Prix Pictet prize with her series Built on Grass and her work will be on display at the Victoria & Albert from November 13th.

All’interno del barattolo: Curated by Porter Ducrist – A project of Tiziana Musi and Shara Wasserman.
Following the 2018 exhibition Assurdita’ Contemporanea, the Gallery of Art of Temple University Rome presented a new project by Spazio In Situ, an artist run space in the neighborhood of Tor Bella Monaca, which has recently emerged as one of the most interesting art spaces in Rome. In this last year, this co-working studio has grown, with the addition of six new young artists, Sveva Angeletti, Alessandra Cecchini, Francesca Cornacchini, Federica di Pietrantonio, Daniele Sciacca andGuendalina Urbano. The exhibition “All’interno del Barattolo”, is the first time that these artists are exhibiting together in a public space. The exhibition underlines the mission of Spazio In Situ to remain in constant dialogue with the work space as a source of artistic experience, a type of generator able to put in dialogue artists of very different mediums and styles (photography, installations, painting), but linked by their reflection on their daily existence, between container and contained, media and message,reality and art, in a relationship that also involves the spectator. Sep. 24th – Oct. 9th, 2019.
Safe Travels/Interrupted Flows: Curated by Marta Bordignon, Camilla Lai e Lorenzo Rinelli in collaboration with Shara Wasserman.
Through 55 photographs, Safe Travels offers an intimate view into the life of the hundreds of immigrants who leave Africa for Italy, along a so called “African Way”: from the misery and threat of their home life, to their difficult and dangerous voyage, by land and sea, to their arrival in Italy, and finally, their often marginalised daily life, as they seek integration and hope.
