Francesco Jodice

Francesco Jodice


Francesco Jodice was born in Naples in 1967. He lives in Milan. His art explores the transforming social landscape of our time, with a particular focus on urban anthropological phenomena and the creation of new participatory processes. His projects are aimed at building a common ground between art and geopolitics, presenting artistic practice as a form of civil poetic. He teaches at the biennial program in Visual Arts and Curatorial Studies and at the MA in Photography and Visual Design at NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan. He was among the founders of collectives Multiplicity and Zapruder. He has been in major group exhibitions such as Documenta, the Venice Biennial, the São Paulo Biennial, the ICP Triennial in New York, the 2nd Yinchuan Biennale, and has shown his work at the Castello di Rivoli (Turin), Tate Modern (London) and the Prado (Madrid). His main projects include What We Want, a photographic atlas surveying landscape as a projection of people desires; The Secret Traces, a urban experimental archive on shadowing; and Citytellers, a film trilogy about new forms of urbanisation. His most recent works— Atlante, American Recordings and Sunset Boulevard—explore the future of the Western World.
