Francesco Vezzoli: A True Hollywood Story!


Launched in association with The Power Plant exhibition Francesco Vezzoli: A True Hollywood Story! (2008), this clothbound publication documents the first major North American survey of Vezzoli’s work produced from 1995 to the present. The unique square-shaped catalogue features reproductions of Vezzoli’s Homage to the Square: inspired needleworks and colossal film posters advertising fictional films starring Marlene Dietrich and Anni Albers. Essays by The Power Plant Director Gregory Burke, Italian writer Gianfranco Maraniello and Art Forum contributor David Rimanelli tease out the contradictions of Vezzoli’s persona and art practice, as well as his fascination with celebrity culture and the phenomenon of “the remake.”
