Marisa Merz

Since the 1960s, Marisa Merz (Turin, 1926) has always insisted on the importance of the making, by using traditional female techniques such as sewing and weaving in relation to the most diverse media like drawing, painting and installation art. The sole female exponent of the Arte Povera movement, Merz has been a protagonist of the Italian art scene since the 1960s. She has participated to historical exhibitions such as Arte Povera + Azioni Povere.
