Maurizio Nannucci

Born in 1939 - Italy


Maurizio Nannucci was born in Florence in 1939. He lives and works in his hometown and also in the South of Germany. An internationally known artist, he has been a featured artist at the Venice Biennale several times and has participated in Documenta, Kassel, and the São Paulo, Sydney, Istanbul, and Valencia biennials. His works have been shown in over 300 exhibitions in museums and galleries.

Maurizio Nannucci is considered one the most inventive experimental artists from the last decades. Historically, he is to be linked to the conceptual art of the late sixties. He questions, from his very first works, the interactions between language, writing and images and he puts the words under the spotlight.

These areas of interest appear at the basis of each new production. However, the artist uses a variety of media: photographs, videos, artist’s books, and sound installations. “Exploration” is his motto – or maybe it’s “color”?
