carlo zanni at marsèlleria

Milano, Italy

Dear Friends,

Cari amici,

I'm very happy to invite you to my upcoming solo show taking place at Marsèlleria Permanent Exhibition in Milano.

It opens next Monday April 7
FB event

I'm introducing several new projects and above all a new way to sell video art and new media.
The most part of the pieces (old and new) are hosted in what I call ViBo from Video Book, and it's basically a book or a digipack equipped with a 7" screen.

ViBo is cheap, € 120 for the moment, Unlimited and Unsigned.

I also invited 3 designers and a producer to join me in this adventure that runs through the world famous SALONE DEL MOBILE week.
They are Raw-Edges, Giorgia Zanellato, Ilaria Innocenti and Mirko Rizzi
It means that some of my pieces will be installed ON or NEXT some meaningful and inspiring "piece of design" .

The show is pretty big, it spans all the 3 big floors of the space with nothing at the walls but filled by tables, installations, light, music and video projections.

One of the new pieces Koh-i-N∞r , features an unreleased track by moby from his terrific and visionary mobygratis platform. I had the privilege to obtain a commercial license for it and so it will be sold in one of the ViBos.

I also did a small artist book with a great text by critic and curator Laura Barreca.

I hope you will attend.


Last: I'm pleased to be featured in Born Digital: Benefit Online Auction on Paddle8 to support the activities of the Link Art Center.
You 'll receive a reminder about it later on.


Stay foolish, buy cheap.




The Sandman, 2013 by Carlo Zanni - project launch

Thu Nov 14, 2013 00:00 - Sun Mar 15, 2015

I'm happy to announce the launch of a new video of mine



This video launches on the occasion of a very cool event held at Young Projects Gallery in Los Angeles.
Paul Young set up an holiday sale for this coming Thursday the 14th with DVDs, Digital Works, Posters etc. by a pool of international artists and I thought it was the perfect occasion to kick-off The Sandman.

So for those attending, it's a sale not a show ! Which is even better, above all when this new video comes in a kinda standalone format, based on a Video in Print module: cheap, easy to preview, with an Hi-Res version inside (below some pics).
