|From the 21st of December Fondazione Prada opens Osservatorio, a new space of exhibit in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan dedicated to the world of photography and the visual languages related. Osservatorio will be a space of exploration of the tendencies and the expressions of the contemporary photography, in terms of its evolution and connections with the other branch of creative knowledges. It opens with the exhibition Give Me Yesterday by Francesco Zanot, from the 21st of December 2016 to the 12th of March 2017, that includes more then 50 works of 14 Italian and international artists. The project explores the use of photography as a personal diary in a time frame from 2000 to nowadays.
||Aware of the work of artists such as Nan Goldin and Larry Clark in the United States or Richard Billingham and Wolfgang Tillmans in Europe, the photographers presented in Give Me Yesterday replace the spontaneity of documentary style with an extreme control of view of the observer and the way he is observed. A new individual identity is expressed through instantaneous and set up photography, performance images and repetitive web cataloguing.
OSSERVATORIO WILL BE A SPACE OF EXPLORATION OF THE TENDENCIES
AND THE EXPRESSIONS OF THE CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHY.
