Currently, living and working in Milan, Francesco Vezzoli’s practice can be described as a series of strong allegories about contemporary culture with a rich subtext of elaborate references involving video installations, petit-point embroideries, photography, live performances, media experiments and -most recently- classical sculpture. He has exhibited his works in the most important international venues such as Centre Pompidou (Pari), MoMA PS1, (New York), Tate Modern (London) and Biennales across the world.
