Grazia Varisco pittore

Grazia Varisco, born in Milan on 5 October 1937, is an Italian artist of importance in the field of kinetic and programmed art. Her artistic training began at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera , where she studied from 1956 to 1960 under the guidance of Achille Funi . During this period, he immersed himself in the research of programmed art, a movement defined by Bruno Munari.
His artistic path took a decisive turn at the beginning of the 1960s, when together with Giovanni Anceschi, Davide Boriani, Gianni Colombo and Gabriele Devecchi, founds the Gruppo T of Milan. This group becomes a point of reference in the field of kinetic and programmed artistic research. Their manifesto symbolizes a vision of reality in continuous evolution, a principle that characterizes Grazia Varisco's entire artistic career.
Grazia Varisco and Gruppo T stand out for their "Miriorama" exhibitions and actively participate in the Arte Programmata exhibitions, organized by Bruno Munari. The introduction of these exhibitions is curated by figures such as Umberto Eco. Since 1963, Grazia Varisco began to exhibit both in Italy and abroad, participating in important events of the international movement Nouvelle Tendance . After the conclusion of the experience with Gruppo T, she continued her independent artistic research. In the meantime, from 1961 to 1967, he collaborated with the Development Office of la Rinascente in Milan as a graphic designer and consultant for various entities, including the magazine "Abitare", Kartell and the Milanese International Plan .
A significant moment in his career occurred at the end of the 1960s when he spent a year in the United States, in Ohio. Here, his meeting with artists and teachers of the Departments of Fine Arts significantly enriches his training and contributes to the international success of his works.
Grazia Varisco's works are known for their balance and visual harmony, characterized by geometric lines and rigorous executive precision. His art is characterized by interactivity and the invitation to the viewer to actively participate. Many of her works include moving parts or elements that change based on the observation and movement of the viewer, creating a dialogue between the work, the environment and the observer.
Grazia Varisco has participated in numerous important artistic events such as the Venice Biennale , the Rome Quadrennial, the Trigon in Graz, the "Italian Art 60/82" exhibition at the Hayward Gallery in London, and many other international exhibitions. In 2007, she was awarded the prize of the Accademia Nazionale di San Luca and in 2018 she received the Antonio Feltrinelli Prize.
Her works are exhibited in prestigious museums and collections around the world, including the Farnesina Collection, the Galleria Nazionale d 'Modern Art in Rome, the MAMbo in Bologna, the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Center Georges Pompidou in Paris.
