Jimmie Durham at MACRO Rome

The entrance of the  MACRO – Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Rome is stunning angular interior designed by French architect Odile Decq. At once dark with strong metal surfaces balanced by glass and bright lights the space very much complemented to the expansive exhibition space within.

Jimmie Durham’s exhibition titled Streets of Rome and Other Stories uses materials like Romanesque furniture, smashed glass, bring symbols of nature, civility and human presence. I especially liked the cast dog sculpture sat patiently watching a silver cast bone hung high on it’s sculptural pedestal.
