The ALESSANDRO BERNI gallery in collaboration with ALCHIMIA/Open Space For Arts is pleased to announce One work, Tony Vaccaro’s solo exhibition.
The One Work Project
The Tony Vaccaro exhibits’ plan has been designed with the purpose of offering the visitor with an oasis for concentration, a phase of his day in between his daily overdose of news, images, events, talks, actions and every other sort of input; this is a visual response to censorship as it is represented by the combination of an excess of noise, or the dangerously intense dark-side of the world of communication of today, that also includes the world of today’s arts.
The “matchbox” ideated by semiologist Umberto Eco, which he transposed back in 2012 into a famous internet initiative against censorship from excess of noise, has been the prime inspiration to this curatorial project. In his brief writing, he exposed the Internet as a place where selected and trustable news are in the same league of pranks and untrustable information; the Internet has in itself a core of sub-cultural approximation affecting every attempt at knowledge transfer.
Going from there, the One work project brings artists, spaces and artworks to the public, in the pursuit of hosting a much needed dialogue based on excellence, listening and silence; further, it aims at creating an aesthetic of the zeitgeist alongside with his present time’s alter egos.
