Veronica Montanino

Biography

Originally from Rome, Veronica Montanino has been showing her work since 2000. Her pieces are characterized by an exuberant and original use of color; she has taken part in both solo and collective exhibitions. Always ready to depart from the narrow confines of the canvas, Montanino has created dozens of site-specific installations in historic buildings, such as the Capitani in Ascoli Piceno in 2006. In 2010, in the café of Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive, her work took over the whole room, incorporating furniture, the ceiling and surrounding walls; this space went on to become part of the permanent collection of the Carandente Museum. In 2011, she participated in the 54th International Art Exhibition in Venice with an installation at the Italian Pavilion of the Arsenale that is included in this exhibit. In 2013, she was invited by La Casa dell’Architettura – Ex Acquario Romano to create a permanent piece for the entrance to the building. For MAAM Museo dell’Altro e dell’Altrove di Metropoliz, she created a game room as well as two other large environmental works.
