Liliana Moro

Liliana Moro (Milan, 1961) studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, and taught at the Accademia Carrara in Bergamo, and at the Iuav University in Venice. In 1989, she founded with other artists Lo Spazio in Via Lazzaro Palazzi in Milan and the magazine “tiracorrendo”, revitalising the Milanese art scene. At Lo Spazio in Via Lazzaro Palazzi, which ran until 1993, she held her first solo exhibition in 1990. In 2012, she was visiting professor at the Fondazione Ratti in Como, and in 2010 and 2014, at the Fondazione Spinola Banna per l’Arte in Banna-Poirino.


Her works, which are rigorous and essentiality, but charged with a poetic-evocative vein and sometimes subtle irony, alternate or mix sculptures, sound, visual installations, photographs, objects and performances, making the public an active part of her research. She has worked with galleries such as Emi Fontana in Milan, Galleria De’ Foscherari in Bologna, Galerie Michel Rein in Tours and Paris, and Francesco Pantaleone Arte Contemporanea in Palermo and Milan. She has exhibited in numerous national and international spaces; her major institutional solo projects include: Migrateurs, ARC – Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville, Paris (1993); De Praktijk, Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst, Antwerp (1996); Bonvicini, Moro & Toderi, De Appel, Amsterdam (1999); In pegno, Museo della Ceramica di Savona, Palazzo del Monte di Pietà, Savona (2022); Andante con moto, Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, Vaduz (2023-2024); in collaboration with PAC – Padiglione Arte Contemporanea di Milano). She has exhibited at Documenta IX, Kassel (1992), at the Venice Biennale (1993 and 2019); and at the Quadriennale in Rome (1996 and 2008). In 2023, her installation Sundown was set up at the ArtLine Sculpture Park, Milan.
