Miltos Manetas to Present “Internet Paintings” at MAXXI, Rome
MAXXI dedicates a focus exhibition to the artist that between social networks, selfie, fashion and Google Street View explores the imaginary of the contemporary age.
For his solo show at MAXXI, Miltos Manetas (Athens, 1964) brings together with large canvases a world populated by selfies, a reality observed by Facebook, pornographic images next to fashion, the streets of the whole world he recorded by Google. A painter, conceptual and theoretical artist, recognized at international level for his internet-based works and for having founded in 2009 the first Internet Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, Miltos tells about the emotions and the imaginary of our contemporary era.
