The Italian Cultural Institute, together with Monash Gallery of Art, presents the first solo exhibition in Australia of the famous Italian artist, Massimo Vitali.
He is best known for his large-scale colour images of beaches and mass leisure events. Vitali has never been drawn to emptiness, and deserted cities hold little interest for him. Following the spring lockdown, as soon as it was possible to leave the house in Italy and travel outside one’s own town, people began to return to the beaches. And Vitali was there, ready to capture the Italians during their moments of relaxation and leisure, as if to ask himself if they had really changed.
