Baltimore-based artist, Giulia Livi installed her new installations, Upholstered in the 13|U Art Windows. The windows, located art 1310 U Street NW, are curated by Hamiltonian Artists and are dedicated to supporting emerging local artists in the D.C., Baltimore, and Virginia area.
Livi is the 2018 SMCM-MICA Artist House Teaching Fellow at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. Her work in painting and installation is an investigation of interior space and design, focusing on abstraction and accessibility. Her immersive rooms employ color and form to work out ideas of weirdly functional artwork and overly-curated home spaces. These spaces invite the viewer to interact with and live with the work, imagining lifestyles that are both retro and futuristic. Her installations center on the acute and the polite, the domestic and the utilitarian. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally with recent solo shows at VAE (Raleigh, NC), Arlington Arts Center (Arlington, VA), and School 33 Arts Center (Baltimore, MD).
Livi’s installations, Upholstered will be up until March 15, 2019.
