Current Exhibition

Vanessa Somers Art Project

University-wide curated show, On Reflection, 2019-2020

On Reflection is the largest art installation ever shown at John Cabot University. Commissioned by the Vanessa Somers Art Project, the show displays works by the distinguished artist Roberto Caracciolo. These form three distinct artistic statements across the three campuses of Critelli, Tiber and Guarini. The works are not displayed in a traditional gallery format but in a synergetic relationship with the movement of students, faculty, staff, and visitors at each campus. In this way, each enhances the other: the experience of the works is inextricably linked to the experience of the space.

Past Events

Geoff Uglow Painting

Collaboration with the 4m2 Gallery, 2019

Assisting the student-led 4m2 Gallery to achieve its most ambitious show to date: a solo-show by the renowned British artist Geoff Uglow. The show Era di marzo // It was in March extends beyond the strict confines of the gallery spaces to create a vibrant and powerful visual experience. Specially selected for the 4m2 Gallery, the paintings resonate with the space and their exploration of the creative act, of making and seeing, parallels the academic research of the space.
