Francesco Vezzoli: Right You Are
Gagosian, Guggenheim Museum
Francesco Vezzoli examines people’s fascination with celebrity. At the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum he restaged “Right You Are (If You Think You Are),” the renowned play by Italian Nobel Laureate Luigi Pirandello. Vezzoli assembled as extraordinary cast of top-billed actors, implicating his audience in an investigation of rumor and celebrity mongering as substitutes for a deeper understanding of the individual. The staging is fully documented in this book in which you can literally view your own reflection, thanks to the inside cover.
