Chiara Mari

Chiara Mari is a historian of modern and contemporary art who received her Ph.D from the Cattolica University of Milan. Her main field of research concerns the dialogue between artists and the new medium of television, examined through a historical perspective. She has several articles on this topic for academic journals (such as Comunicazioni Sociali, No. 3, 2016), exhibition catalogues (Palazzo Strozzi, Florence, 2018) and conference proceedings (Postmedia, 2017). Her other publications focus on different aspects of nineteenth and twentieth-century Italian art, including the history of caricature in the mid-nineteenth-century avant-garde movement Scapigliatura, the Milanese Triennale exhibitions, and the history of the Venetian Cavallino gallery and publishing house. She has worked as a scientific coordinator of research projects on Franco Angeli (Archivio Franco Angeli – Marsilio, 2017) Virgilio Guidi (Fondazione Giorgio Cini – Marsilio, 2017) and Arnaldo Pomodoro (Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro – Forma, 2019). In 2015, she held a fellowship at the Contemporary Art Museum, Zagreb, where she conducted research on New Tendencies and experimental film. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice, where she works on the Cardazzo Archive. She collaborates with the Cattolica University, Milan and Brescia.
