Preview: Dan Witz’s “Public and Confidential” at Wunderkammern

The artist has a solo show titled "Public and Confidential" at Wunderkammern in Rome coming up on September 28, on view through November 16. Witz will travel to Italy for the occasion to do some pieces on the street the week leading up to the opening and collaborate on a video with Amnesty International.
