This exhibition showcases the works of 12 artists mostly in their 20s and 30s,
each characterized by a single keyword such as Real Time, Power and
Defeat. These works, done in a variety of mediums ranging from neon to
DVD, constitute an excellent opportunity to experience a dynamic new
generation of Italian artists who have achieved international recognition.
They include Maurizio Cattelan, who is known for his action-based
installations, including one at the 1999 Venice Biennale featuring the burial
of an Indian fakir. Another, Vanessa Beecroft, has garnered attention for
staging performances of standing naked women at various venues.
