The Piranesi Effect


(2016). The Piranesi Effect.

Contemporary artworks by Australian artists Rick Amor, Mira Gojak, Michael Graf, Andrew Hazewinkel, Peter Robinson, Jan Senbergs and Simon Terrill are juxtaposed with a selection of prints by Giovanni Battista Piranesi to highlight the many ways in which the strategies and devices used by the eighteenth-century artist and architect are still very much a part of the way artists work today.

The exhibition also includes objects from the University’s Classics and Archaeology Collection, the University of Melbourne Art Collection and the Baillieu Library Special and Print collections together with works from the State Library of Victoria and private lenders.
Curator: Jenny Long

The Piranesi effect is a companion exhibition to a large Piranesi survey at the State Library of Victoria titled Rome: Piranesi’s vision
