'Think Twice, Young American Photography' is a surrealist photography exhibition featuring the works of seven young American artists: Grant Worth, Roe Etheridge, Dan Torop, Diana Kingsley, Kathryn Hillier, Kevin Cooley and William Lamson.

The second exhibition will take place in the courtyard of the Art Nouveau palazzo and feature light installations created by young Dutch designer, Simon Heijdens.

The exhibition 'Think Twice' will be on from 5th April to 8th May, with the following visiting hours: Tuesday to Sunday: 10.00-19.00 – Closed on Mondays.

Simon Heijdens' light installations will continue throughout the Furniture Fair, from 5th April to 10th April.

"The chance to host young American artistic talent, once again, and extend the concept of TH INSIDE to design, fills me with great pride," said Tommy Hilfiger, Honorary Chairman and Principal Designer of Tommy Hilfiger Corporation.

"The Italian public has shown that it is receptive to the world of American culture and that it appreciates TH INSIDE as a point of reference for this kind of creative expression."

As a platform for young American photography, TH INSIDE enjoyed a successful launch last December with the group show 'Beyond the Portrait.'

Now it is consolidating its role as a European reference-point for American culture, in particular American photography, with its second exhibition, 'Think Twice, Young American Photography.'

Based on the concept of surrealist photography, the exhibition's title, 'Think Twice,' is an invitation to think and look at the reality behind the photographs twice. This exhibition will train one's eye to reach beyond the superficiality of the known in order to reach unknown forms of beauty.

Also on display are extraordinary light installations created by young Dutch designer, Simon Heijdens. Using a technique of interactive digital projection, Heijdens narrates and amplifies the endless evolutionary rhythm of natural processes such as a tree's changes through the passing of seasons.

The resulting illusion is highly convincing, almost film-like.
