Artwork description

Invisible Cities is part of a site-specific project by artist Harriet Bart that documented the history of artists who worked in Studio VA5 at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts between 2004 and 2010. While a resident at the Center in 2010, Bart began to view the paint-splattered floor of the studio as a palimpsest containing memories of the forty-six artists who had been there before her. After marking off sections of the floor and scrubbing the spaces between them, Bart photographed the resulting compositions. She then layered these images with hand-drawn maps. This suite of loose prints takes its name from the title of the Italo Calvino book that provided inspiration to the artist during this project. Housed in a two-piece box covered with textured black paper, Invisible Cities features nine archival pigment prints on heavyweight rag paper.
