Marco Maggi : Micro-revolution

On the occasion of the upcoming Marco Maggi’s personal show in our Paris gallery, Xippas is happy to dedicate new episode of Cinema Room to his work. Micro-revolution, a program by Marco Maggi, will consist of two chapters featuring two separate films, gradually introducing you into the artist’s vertiginous universe of detail and precision.
