online video gallery

curated by Valentina Tanni

A series of works of art in video format for an online view. Short and intense sequences, designed to capture the attention of a spectator engaged in daily navigation through a magmatic and hypertrophic information universe.

The Alberto Peruzzo Foundation transforms its website into a temporary exhibition space hosting, in rotation, unpublished works signed by Italian and international artists. The videos, commissioned for the occasion and placed in a large area – the main one – of the homepage, will welcome the visitor offering suggestions in a place normally intended for the transmission of simple information. The website turns into a real virtual architecture, framing and welcoming the experiments carried out by the artists in the field of moving images.
