Maria Molteni is a Nashville/Boston based multimedia & performing artist, educator & organizer. Her practice sprung from formalist roots in painting and printmaking and has grown to incorporate research, participation, and spiritual experimentation. From fiber to found-object sculpture, painting to movement, performance to publication, she employs tactile and tactical processes per their ability to manifest elaborate conceptual orchestration and intuitive synaesthetic provocation. Exploring iterations of sport, craft, feminism, animism, glossolalia, urban planning, and more she takes interest in standardized systems that influence ritual in everyday functionality. She playfully asks audiences to imagine her serving Black Mountain College as a PE coach : )
