Marco Brambilla

Marco Brambilla (1960, Milan) is a Canadian visual artist based in New York and Berlin who has gained international recognition for his video installations. Brambilla is known for his elaborate image recontextualizations, often using cutting edge technology. He has pioneered the use of 3D technology in video art. His videos are hyper-saturated altarpieces that test the limits of visual overload, looping and interlacing in a way that questions the temporal parameters of the moving image. His works discuss the language of modern cinema and pop culture, while both celebrating and satirizing Hollywood's blockbusters.

 

Brambilla’s video installations have been screened at the Venice Film Festival and at Sundance Film Festival. He had his first major retrospective at the Santa Monica Museum of Art (2011). His work has been exhibited and is part of the collection of important institutions such as MoMa and the Salomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Fundación Arco in Madrid. In 2016, along with one of his pieces being shown at the Berlin Biennial, La Nave Salinas in Ibiza, a foundation created and led by Lio Malca, projected one of his most important works Megaplex (https://www.lanavesalinas.org/2016-marco-brambilla).
