Born in 1991, Giulia Mangoni is an Italian-Brazilian artist whose practice revolves around the ethics of return; she is interested in creating interventions orchestrated through the lens of painting in order to deconstruct notions of memory and identity attached to specific geographies and communities.
Born in Isola del Liri, FR, Mangoni was raised between Italy and Brazil and now lives and works in her hometown. Mangoni has a Foundation Degree in Art & Design from Falmouth University of the Arts (2011), a Painting BA (Hons) from City & Guilds of London Art School (2014), where she was awarded the Skinner Connard’s Travel Prize and the Chadwick Healey Prize for Painting, and an MFA from the SVA Art Practice program in New York City, (2019).
She has participated in both national and international exhibitions, including From the Island of Liri, a solo show curated by Juliana Leandra at Dreambox Lab, New York; Ladder to The Moon at Monitor Gallery, Rome; VIVERE DI PAESAGGIO, curated by Mirta d'Argenzio at APALAZZO Gallery, Brescia; Zeitgeber (donatore di tempo) at ArtNoble gallery, Milan and The New Abnormal, Straperetana curated by Saverio Verini.
Further to this, in 2020 Mangoni was selected for the CASTRO Projects fellowship program in Rome, being awarded the Scovaventi Italian Fellowship, and was recently invited for a solo exhibition at the 4m2 student gallery at the John Cabot University in Rome. During the same period, Mangoni also organized a group intervention in the town of Castro dei Volsci (Ciociaria), with artists Pietro Librizzi, James Hillman and Anouk Chambaz.
