Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name, designed by Diego Marcon for the spaces of the Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci in Prato, curated by Stefano Collicelli Cagol and Elena Magini, Glassa brings together five essays that explore the exhibition from as many points of view, thus investigating diverse aspects of the artist’s working methodology. Themes such as the display, special effects, ceramic sculptures, the community of people brought together through his work, and his relationship with cinema provide the input through which to view this exhibition project as part of Marcon’s many years of research. The volume is further enhanced by a visual essay of photographs and other documentation produced by the artist.


Diego Marcon (*1985) primarily focuses on moving image. His practice centres on the investigation of cinematic archetypes in a process combining theoretical and structural approaches to filmmaking, with the sentimental attitudes of popular movie genres. He has held solo exhibitions at Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci, Prato (2023); Fondazione Nicola Trussardi, Teatro Gerolamo, Milan (2023); Sadie Coles HQ, London (2023); Museo Madre, Naples (2021); Institute of Contemporary Art Singapore/LASALLE, Singapore (2019); La Triennale di Milano, Milan (2018). His work was also part of group exhibitions including Galerie Buchholz, Cologne (2022); The 59th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia, Venice (2022); Royal Academy – de Tempel, Antwerp (2021); Museo MACTE, Termoli (2021); Fondazione Prada, Milan (2018) and MAXXI - Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, Rome (2018).
