The work of five Video Artists – among which is the work of Bill Viola, pioneer of the field – is featured at GAMC in Viareggio today, Saturday the 5th of October as part of the IX Giornata del Contemporaneo.
Maurizio Marco Tozzi has curated a program of Video Art pieces for the 50th anniversary of the birth of Video Art, and five major proponents have taken part… they are: Alessandro Amaducci, Bill Viola, Giacomo Verde, Gianni Toti, and Lino Strangis, who will be present to showcase – and discuss – their art.
The screenings take place at the GAMC (Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea of Viareggio) and start at 4pm, today, the 5th of October, 2013.
Mr. Tozzi will lead a conference tracing the birth and developement of the medium, from the first video experiments by Na June Paik and Wolf Vostell, in the seventies. Today Video Art has been re-invented from within – to put it mildly – thanks to innovations in the technology available… but the highlight is the presence of the five auteurs who will present their work, and answer questions afterwards.
Video Art is thriving … in Viareggio.
Alessandro Amaducci, Bill Viola, Giacomo Verde, Gianni Toti, and Lino Strangis,
