“Reading the News is an 8-hour long performance during which I sit on a chair in an empty room. Strewn on the floor around me are the newspapers of the day and some other publications of that week, published in the locality where I am performing. While changing on my head for no apparent reason 4 colored hats that are also on the floor, I pick at random and read aloud whatever phrases fall under my eyes: political news, ephemera, obituaries, advertisements, marriage announcements, animal events, etc. I substitute the names “John Smith” and “Mary Jones” for all men’s and women’s names I encounter. As I do this I do not address the audience but behave as if I were alone, indifferent to what passes by me.”
​Lucio Pozzi from the introduction of Reading the News

 

Lucio Pozzi - was born in 1935 in Milan, Italy. After living a few years in Rome, where he studied architecture, he came to the United States in 1962, as a guest of the Harvard International Summer Seminar. He then settled in New York and took the US citizenship. He now shares his time between his Hudson (NY) and Valeggio s/M (VR) studios. In 1978 the Museum of Modern Art, New York, exhibited his early videotapes in one of the first single-artist exhibitions of the Projects:Video series. He occasionally writes and has taught at the Cooper Union, Yale Graduate Sculpture Program, Princeton University, Maryland Institute of Art, School of Visual Arts. He currently is a visiting instructor at art schools in the US and Europe. His work has been presented at Documenta 6 (1977) and at the Venice Biennale (American Pavilion) in 1980. His art is represented in many private and public collections. Pozzi was honored with a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in 1983. He received a Master Honoris Causa from the Accademia di Verona, Italy, in 2010. Premio Ciampi L’altrarte 2015. Premio Lissone 2018, Career Prize.
