Add to Calendar 02-05-2013 22-06-2013 15 Paolo Ventura - The Infinite City Paolo Ventura's Infinite City is composed of sets of unique hand painted, 4" x 5" Polaroids. The works are groups of either 5 or 10 images, all framed individually, but hung together to create a skyline of an imagined city. Inspiration for the infinite skyline came from trips the artist took on the "Q" train, from Brooklyn to Manhattan with Italian writer Italo Calvino's book, Invisible Cities, in tow. In a conversation between two characters, Calvino's book explores imagination and what is possible through the descriptions of cities. The book consists of brief prose poems describing 55 cities, where there are short dialogues between the two characters, interspersed every five to ten cities. The book is structured around an interlocking pattern of numbered sections, where the length of each section's title graphically outlines a continuously oscillating city skyline. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=134960 Hasted Kraeutler true DD/MM/YYYY
