TV Dinner documents an important installation at the Museum by Maurizio Cannavacciuolo. The Italian artist's first museum exhibition in the U.S., "TV Dinner" is an intricately patterned site-specific wall drawing, executed in two parts, which contains hidden narratives about the Museum's collection and legendary founder as well as elements characteristic of Cannavacciuolo personal myths and low-key humor. This book documents the five-month installation and surveys Cannavacciuolo's earlier works. Essays include an examination of the process by which Cannavacciuolo created this monumental yet ephemeral work by Pieranna Cavalchini and a consideration of his wider oeuvre with particular attention to the role of performance and pattering in his art by Marcia E.
