Maria Morganti

Maria Morganti (Milan, 1965), lives and works in Venice. She is an artist whose practice focuses on the experience of colour in terms of it being a substance and trace of experience. Her works are sedimentations of time that contain the sense of a continual transformation. What the artist produces daily in the solitude of her studio through a flowing daily rhythm, is subsequently gathered and conserved in a precise system of archivisation and then placed in relation to other realities in an attempt to trigger a contact between her own interiority and the external shared space. Among her personal exhibitions there are: The Substitute: The Itinerant Studio, GAM – Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Turin (2019); Exquisite Gardens with Massimo Kaufmann, Casa Testori, Novate Milanese, Milan (2014); The Unit of Measurement is Color, Castelvecchio Museum, Verona (2010); Chromatic diary, Querini Stampalia Foundation, Venice (2008). She has also participated in numerous collective exhibitions and institutions including: I Say That, GNAM – National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, Rome (2021); The Emotion of Colors in Art, GAM/Castello di Rivoli, Turin, (2017); Èdra, all of Italy is Silent, Royal Academy of Spain, Rome (2015); Self-portraits, Inscriptions of the Feminine in Contemporary Italian Art, MAMbo, Bologna (2013).
