Carlo Zanni


Member Since January 1, 1996


Since the early 2000’s Carlo Zanni’s practice has explored the use of Internet data to create time-based works that combine a pronounced social consciousness with the mediated experience of advanced technologies. In many ways it finds its roots in Sol Lewitt’s statement, “The idea becomes a machine that makes the art”, only Zanni prefers a more updated version: “The idea becomes the code that renders the art.” Zanni (born in La Spezia Italy, 1975) has been the recipient of a commission and he has shown in galleries and museums worldwide including: Arts Santa Mònica, Barcelona; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; New Museum, New York; Marsèlleria, Milan; Tent, Rotterdam; MAXXI, Rome; P.S.1, New York; Borusan Center, Istanbul; PERFORMA 09, NY and ICA, London. Zanni also invented ViBo, an Open Source Project and he is the author of “Art in the age of the Cloud” published by Diorama Editions
