Maurizio Nannucci


(Florence, 1939)

Maurizio Nannucci is one of the leading Italian contemporary artists. Based between Florence and Germany, Nannucci’s work is of an ecclectic nature, including photography, video, neon installations, sound installation, artist’s books and editions. Since the mid-sixties he has been a protagonist of international artistic experimentation in Concrete Poetry, Fluxus and Conceptual Art. In this period he consolidated the basic elements of what would later become his visual language by exploring the rapport between art, language, and image. During the 1990s the artist started working with increased interest in the relationship between work, architecture, and urban landscape by collaborating with the architects Auer & Weber, Mario Botta, Massimiliano Fuksas, and Renzo Piano. Some of his permanent installations can be seen at the Auditiorium of the Parco Della Musica and Fiumicino airport, both in Rome, and at the Bibliothek des Deutschen Bundestages, Berlin. Nannucci 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 work belongs to museum collections all over the world, including those of The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; and the Paul Getty Art Center, Los Angeles.
