Il video rende felici. Videoarte in Italia
exhibition curated by Valentina Valentini
Rome, Palazzo delle Esposizioni and Galleria d’Arte Moderna
April 12 – September 4, 2022

Lo schermo dell’arte participates in the exhibition Il video rende felici. Videoarte in Italia by presenting at the Galleria d’Arte Moderna in Rome 10 works by young artists who from 2012 to 2021 took part in the project  VISIO European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images.

The selection of works highlights how the generation of VISIO artists born after 1980 was formed at a time in history when confrontation with reality and its representation is often necessary and inevitable.

In occasion of the exhibition the catalogue Video arte in Italia curated by Cosetta Saba and Valentina Valentini (Treccani, 2022) will be published, including an essay by Valeria Mancinelli in which the project Lo schermo dell’arte is examined in the light of the success and development in our country of moving images and artists’ cinema from the early 2000s.
