The exhibition focuses on the production of art videos and arthouse cinema in Italy between the late 1960s and the start of the new millennium. Promoting exemplary and pioneering initiatives, Italy has always been an artistic and cultural focal point for video experimentation in terms of variety, quality and international scope.

The exhibition showcases 20 installations, in addition to over 300 works in dedicated retrospectives providing a total of over 80 hours of screening. The exhibition unfolds amid the myriad formats on display ranging from monochannel video to video installations, multimedial videos, interactive videos and apparatuses designed to review the works’ productive and historical processes.

The project involves over 100 artists overall who, over the past sixty years, have used the electronic and digital device in its multiple aspects as a priority medium for audiovisual research and experimentation.

The Galleria d’Arte Moderna hosts both monochannel works and installations from centres for the production and dissemination of video art active in Italy since the 1960s and with a strong international leaning.

The Palazzo delle Esposizioni shines the spotlight on the installation format’s transformations in its interaction with space and with technological devices in a timeline stretching from the late 1960s to the 21st century.

The project is promoted by Ministero della Cultura – Direzione generale Creatività Contemporanea, Roma Culture - Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali and Azienda Speciale Palaexpo, it is organised by the Azienda Speciale Palaexpo, Roma Culture - Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali and Zètema Progetto Cultura.
