PHOTOGRAPHY

For us at MVIVA, photography is as an artistic expression that is as important as the other visual arts and which is perfectly in line with the interests of an increasingly diversified and international audience. When we talk about the great photographers of the twentieth century or of important contemporary photographers, we are able to revisit our recent history as protagonists and narrate the here and now through crucial and unique photographs.

VIDEO ART

MVIVA organizes video-themed art happenings or video-work events concerning important international artists that are not solely a pure documentation of reality. MVIVA focuses on the unique ability of video art to shape reality and on perception by changing the traditional position of the spectator who, instead, often plays an active part.
MVIVA has curated video art installations for the UNIFOR Plastica Biennial of Fortaleza (2011), the Moscow Biennial (2011), the Fin del Mundo Bienal in Argentina and Chile (2015) and for the Florence Biennale (2017).
