Summary

The definitive monograph on celebrated Italian artist of the meta-spectacle, Francesco Vezzoli. Francesco Vezzoli has become famous for a body of work that belies both a fascination for and a revulsion toward celebrity culture. His wide-ranging works include serigraphs with areas of hand-stitched embroidery, film, and photography, and his ability to create a thriving nexus of art, celebrity, fashion, and cinema is reflected in his splashy live performances.Documenting fifteen years of Vezzoli's practice, this monograph includes the artist's collaborations with an eminent group of luminaries, from Miuccia Prada and Frank Gehry to Cate Blanchett, Gore Vidal, Roman Polanski, Damien Hirst, Lady Gaga, and the Bolshoi Ballet. The book is organized as a seductive anthology of projects, each introduced by a distinguished art critic, curator, or chronicler of modern culture, all of whom have been participators and observers to the course of Vezzoli's career. These enduring collaborations reveal the many touchstones that make up the artist's elaborate and mesmerizing universe: modernity and retro, Hollywood Babylon and personal obsessions, icons of camp and high culture, haute couture and kitsch.
