Ventana 244: is pleased to present Picture City,an exhibition by Peter Scott. Existing as much in fantasy and imagination as in its complex and contradictory realities, the "big city" draws millions of visitors every year who revel in its Oz–like qualities. Providing a glamorous and worldly backdrop for vacationers from across the globe, the city also promotes dreams of urban living to those with ambitions to live out one of the many television and movie narratives offered in today's multi-format media world.

As pictures disseminated through the limitless screens in our midst reconstruct the "actual" conditions of city life, Picture City examines the fine line between reality and fiction through visual evidence of the power of images to re-contextualize and reshape the physical dimensions of the urban landscape. The exhibition will feature drawings, photographs, archival, and installation work that explore the significant role that perceptual phenomena play in our everday experience of the city.
