Televisionario. Prada Foundation, Milan May 8th- September 24th 2017

The exhibition is a project conceived by the artist Francesco Vezzoli and developed in collaboration with RAI, the National Italian Broadcasting Corporation.  Divided into three parts, Art and Television, Politics and Television, Entertainment and Television, it is meant as a journey throughout the Seventies’ imagery and production in Italian television: a dialogue between Tv programs and artworks - chosen as an ideal counterpoint to the real television programs, as true documents of the time against the immateriality of the flow of images – in a continuous play of visual and semantic confrontations and shortcircuits.

Gianni Pettena takes part in the exhibition with his work “Applausi” (1968), which is ironically placed at the end of the exhibition path.
