17 March-5 April 2009. Four performances (VB48, VB54, VB61, VB62) by Italian born and New York based artist Vanessa Beecroft, as well as her latest one, VB65, which uses the theme of the Last Supper to highlight the drama of immigration. 20 African immigrants, dressed with formal black dinner jackets and suits eat silently at a 12m long table in front of an audience of guests. The table-companions drink water or wine and eat meat and brown bread without platters or silverware. In VB65 Beecroft has selected immigrants from Africa, all of them men. They have been asked to participate in this project for two days each. The video of the event, during which the audience will also be photographed and videoed, will be donated to Milan
