Maria Morganti graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Brera and studied at the Studio School and N.Y.U. in New York. Since 1995 she has made Venice her home. She puts the experience of colour at the centre of her work: colour intended as substance, as the trace of existence. Her pictorial procedure takes place in her studio and follows a precise systemisation (one colour a day), though it often puts her in close relation with other realities and other spaces.
Her numerous exhibitions include: Maria Morganti curated by Angela Vettese, Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, Venice 2006; Leporelli in White Screen curated by Milovan Farronato, Via Farini, Milan 2007; Diario cromatico curated by Chiara Bertola, Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venice 2008. Residencies include: Made in Filandia 2015, Pieve a Presciano, Arezzo 2015; Conservare il futuro, Workshop, Palazzo Bonaguro, Bassano del Grappa, Vicenza 2006, Art/Omi, Ghent (USA) 1997.
