Francesco Vezzoli
MAXXI Auditorium, free admittance
An Italian artist whose works, frequently true short films, investigate themes associated with high cinematic culture and trash television. His videos are tributes to the auteur film tradition from Stanley Kubrick to Luchino Visconti, from Roberto Rossellini to Pier Paolo Pasolini, and at times a reflection on popular culture, from reality shows to soap operas and through to hard movies. An irreverent icon of the international art scene, Vezzoli has exhibited in the world’s leading museums including Tate Modern in London, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Venice Biennale and MAXXI in Rome.
