MAXXI is devoting a focus exhibition to Miltos Manetas based on the work Italian Painting, 2000 from 2000, part of the museum’s collection and a forerunner of the series entitled The Internet Paintings.

Recognised worldwide for his internet-based works investigating new technologies and their influence on human beings, the artist brings together on canvas inputs from the virtual world and processes them through the analysis and decodification of the real and its representation, thus creating a new inconographical system of the present.

Through oil painting and the web, the Internet Paintings come to life on canvas

Collages of site and images collected on the web, the surface of the Internet Painting modifies, updates and houses new pages just as every web site continuously evolves, appears and disappears.

The themes of the paintings in the project: #Bb9#BerlinBiennale2016 (il presente travestito), Google Street View, MedioSud, Moda Muerta, Natura Matura, NEEN + Ñewpressionism, Selfies.

Manetas’s creative process, based on a profound need to communicate typical our present is shared with other people: throughout the period of the exhibition those who responded to an open call will play an active part, together with the artist, in the conception, creation and modification of the pictorial cycle.

Other artists will also be involved in the project.

OTHER TIPS
The installation, exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2007 but since then hidden from public view, constitutes an exemplar of Vascellari’s oeuvre and despite belonging to his early period, contains many elements typical of his research. MAXXI, Roma
Working across mediums, with a concentration in sculpture and video as well as prose and poetry, New York-based artist Diamond Stingily draws on personal and collective memory in order to examine the condition of American identity today. Through her iconic use of found materials such as wood doors, chains, and synthetic hair associated with her childhood memories and experiences, Stingily imbues the readymade with political and personal urgency.
