Martina Corbetta_Giussano (Monza Brianza), 1984
Art critic & Art historian
Master degree in History and Art Criticism by Università Statale di Milano.
Since 2012 I have been working as art critic, curator, consultant and dealer. After several collaborations with galleries, magazines and artists – in the contemporary scene – I decided to become a freelance so in 2015 I opened my own space to be able to create projects, develop ideas with artists and dialogue with collectors. All my choices and achievements followed my passion for painting. I combine my art skills and brokerage with a very important aspect of my life: travelling, which allows me to find and meet contemporary international talents with whom to build a bridge so dear to me, the cultural exchange bridge. The goal for me has always been to establish a dialogue between the Italian art scene and the foreign one, and vice versa.
I curated a series of exhibitions and projects, among which: Canang by Nuria Mora; The time is now! by Albert Pinya with text by Gianluca Ranzi; Tell me the Story by Daniela Novello and Patrizia Novello with text by Cristina Muccioli; Concerto. Singing over the Bones the experimental solo show by Elisa Bertaglia in collaboration with Rossella Farinotti; Wormhole by Laurina Paperina and Albert Pinya in collaboration with Rossella Farinotti and text by Tolo Cañellas; Mirabilia by Luca Moscariello; History happens by Giacomo Morelli with texts by Gianluca Ranzi and Marco Meneguzzo; the first retrospective show in Milan by Laurina Paperina, Mixtape in collaboration with Rossella Farinotti.
In 2016 I founded Noa Noa Art Residency, a program created to host international artists from all over the world in Indonesia.
Since 2019 I’m the curator of Banca Sistema Arte project which I have curated the following exhibitions: Esistenze Sincrone by Dario Maglionico; Frammenti Paesaggio with Thomas Berra, Elisa Bertaglia, Linda Carrara, Alberto Gianfreda and Thomas Scalco; A riveder le Stelle! by Luca Moscariello.
Since 2021 I have been collaborating with Maab Galley as art advisor.
Thanks to my training as art critic and historian, I coordinate site-specific projects, exhibitions and art events, with a keen eye on the contemporary market, providing a purchasing guide that helps broadening the client’s vision on global art.
