MOCA presents Cinema Vezzoli, an exhibition that highlights artist Francesco Vezzoli's mastery in deconstructing the vocabulary of film-making and in analyzing how the celebrity-driven culture influences art and the public imagination. The Milan-based artist debuts a new series of works inspired by the history of Hollywood cinema and the representation of the female persona in art and the mass media. The exhibition is the final component of a three-part series presented at different international museums.
