The Italian Cultural Institute – La Valletta celebrates the “Giornata del Contemporaneo - Contemporary Art Day” with the screening of the OBSESSION VEZZOLI, docu-film dedicated to the artist Francesco Vezzoli.

The movie is a live documentary recording of a couple of years in the life of internationally acclaimed artist Francesco Vezzoli while preparing his exhibitions in some of the world's most prestigious museums and institutions and for major art events: MAXXI Museum in Rome, MoCA in Los Angeles, the Venice Architecture Biennale, Pitti Immagine in Florence, Doha Qatar Museum of Modern Art, MoMA PS1 in New York and Aurora Museum in Shanghai.

Descriptions of his major artworks and projects are enriched with exclusive commentaries by some of the most influential and interesting key players on the international art and cultural scene who have contributed to his career such as French philosopher Bernard Henry Lévy, W Magazine Director Stefano Tonchi, Los Angeles MoCA Director Philippe Vergne, MoMA PS1 Director and Chief Curator at Large at MoMA in New York Klaus Biesenbach, and Cindy Sherman, one of the most respected and celebrated contemporary artists.

Viewers will be accompanied through each project from the initial idea to the 'making of' an artwork and the exhibition opening in order to understand the artist's creative process and the reasons that have rapidly turned Vezzoli into the world's most famous emerging Italian artist.
