February 21 @ 18:30 20:00

Francesco Jodice will be at Micamera on Wednesday, February 21 to launch his latest book:
WEST (Electa, 2023)

Jodice will be in conversation with Matteo Balduzzi, curator of the exhibition at the National Archaeological Museum in Naples – booksigning will follow

WEST chronicles the rise and fall of the last great western empire in a time span from the start of the Gold Rush (1848) to the collapse of Lehman Brothers (2008).
Travelling in three long journeys through the deserts of the American West, artist and photographer Francesco Jodice reinterprets a part of our history through a visual repertoire of myths and ruins, of utopias, mirages and failures: archaeology of a present that is already past.

The publication has been released to accompany the exhibition ‘West’ held at the National Archaeological Museum in Naples between 2023 and 2024. Texts by Francesco Zanot, Matteo Balduzzi, Francesco Costa and Mario Calabresi.
