Overview

The definitive monograph on the celebrated Italian artist. 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 create a thriving nexus of art, celebrity, fashion, and cinema that is reflected in his splashy live performances. This book is organized as a seductive anthology of projects, each introduced by a distinguished art critic, curator, or chronicler of modern culture. These enduring collaborations reveal the many touchstones that make up the artist’s universe: modernity and retro, Hollywood Babylon and personal obsessions, icons of camp and high culture, haute couture and kitsch. Produced in close collaboration with the artist, the book design features a die-cut case and embroidered pages.
