In and beyond the space of the Roman Forum is a narrative exhibition about place, space and time, retracing the history of the Roman Forum through contemporary art responses to ancient artefacts and master historical engraved prints. An evocative interdisciplinary exhibition that captures the rich ambience and atmosphere of the Forum, interrogates our perceptions of how we view the ancient world today. The exhibition explores a textural and multi-layered reading of the Forum exploring the overlaps, drivers and nuances of history that are reawakened through this process.

The Macquarie University Art Gallery offers regular, changing exhibition programs to engage audiences from all walks of life.
