Marco Brambilla is a visual and installation artist, based in New York and Berlin. He is primarily known for his elaborate re-contextualizations of found imagery, often employing new technologies in his work. He has pioneered the use of 3D technology in video art with his Megaplex trilogy, LiDAR computer-mapping for Anthropocene (a public art installation in New York City), as well as photo-realistic computer simulations of an Apollo launch, presented on 54 large screens in Times Square (2015). Brambilla’s work has been internationally exhibited and is in the collections of the Guggenheim Museum; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; ARCO Foundation, Madrid; Art Gallery of Ontario, Ontario, Canada; and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C. Notable shows include New Museum, New York; Santa Monica Museum of Art (Retrospective); Seoul Biennial, Korea; Broad Art Museum, Lansing, Michigan; and Kunsthalle Bern, Switzerland.
Brambilla is a recipient of the Tiffany Comfort Foundation and Tiffany Colbert Foundation awards and has also worked with luxury brands for which he has created large scale video installations. His work has been featured at the 2011 Venice Film Festival and 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The Megaplex trilogy has been recently shown at Borusan Contemporary in Istanbul, Turkey and Fondation Beyeler in Basel, Switzerland.
