Born in 1991 in Isola del Liri, FR, Giulia Mangoni is an Italian-Brazilian artist that grew up between Italy and Brazil and has now returned to live and work in her hometown. Mangoni has a Foundation Degree in Art & Design from Falmouth University of the Arts (2011), a BA in painting (Hons) from City & Guilds of London Art School (2014), where she also won both the Skinner Connard's Travel Prize and the Chadwick Healey Prize for painting, and an MFA from the SVA Art Practice programme in New York City, (2019).
Giulia Mangoni's 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 linked to specific geographies and communities.
In recent years, Mangoni has participated in exhibitions nationally and internationally, including: Una Boccata D'Arte, in San Lorenzo Dorsino, Trentino Alto Adige, a project by Fondazione Elpis, Galleria Continua and Threes Productions; Bits & Cream. Metabolizzazione d'Archivio, ArtNoble gallery, Milan; From the Island of Liri, a solo exhibition 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 (donor of time) at ArtNoble gallery, Milan and The New Abnormal, Straperetana curated by Saverio Verini.
Furthermore, in 2020 Mangoni participated in the fellowship programme at CASTRO Projects in Rome, winning the Scovaventi Italian Fellowship. Recently, Mangoni was invited for a solo exhibition at the 4m2 student gallery at John Cabot University in Rome and, in parallel, organised a collective intervention in the town of Castro dei Volsci (Ciociaria) with artists Pietro Librizzi, James Hillman and Anouk Chambaz. In 2021, Mangoni was winner of the Premio Lissone - Museo d'Arte Contemporanea, where in 2023, she was winner of the Combat Prize under the 'Painting' section.
