Liliana Moro (b. 1961, Milan, Italia) lives and works in Milan. She graduated from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, where she studied with Luciano Fabro. In 1989 she founded, together with other artists, the Spazio Autogestito in Via Lazzaro Palazzi in Milan which remained active until 1993. Sound, words, sculptures, objects and performance, compose a world that "stages" a reality which is simultaneously raw and poetic. Her works are reduced to the essential, she creates environmental installation using existent materials and objects of everyday use. A fundamental aspect of Liliana Moro’s work is the public engagement, she encourages the viewer to participate actively in the work by changing their point of view and questioning their certainties.
Liliana Moro has shown in major international group exhibitions including Documenta 9, Kassel (1992); Venice Biennale (1993); Castello di Rivoli, Turin (1994); Quadriennale, Rome (1996/2008); Moderna Museet, Stockholm (1998); PS1, New York (1999); De Appel, Amsterdam (1999), and the Bienal de Valencia (2001). She held several solo shows at Galleria Emi Fontana, Milan; Greta Meert, Brussels; MUHKA, Antwerp, and Fondazione Ambrosetti, Brescia. She has shown her work at the Italian Cultural Institute of Los Angeles (2008), and Fabbrica del Vapore, Milan (2008), and has participated in important group exhibitions, including Italics, Palazzo Grassi, Venice (2008); Focus on Contemporary Italian Art, Mambo, Bologna (2008); Save Venice, Magazzini del Sale, side event of the 53. Venice Biennale (2009), and Celebration, Institution, Critique, Galleria Civica di Trento (2009); All'Aperto, permanent work, Zegna Foundation, Trivero (2015); Ennesima, Triennale, Milan (2015).
