Giulia Lamoni (Italy/Portugal) is an art historian exploring the articulations between art and feminisms in Portugal and Brazil in the 1960s and 1970s, the relations between contemporary art and migratory processes, and the shaping of transnational artistic networks, heterogeneous forms of collaboration and dialogue from the 1960s to the present.

She is a visiting assistant professor at Nova University in Lisbon and a researcher at the Art History Institute at the same university. Her research is funded by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia. She holds a PhD in Aesthetics / Arts and Sciences of Art from the University of Paris I / Panthéon Sorbonne.

She co-curated, with Margarida Brito Alves and Filomena Serra, the exhibition Co-Habitar at Casa da América Latina in Lisbon (2016-2017), and is currently working on a solo exhibition of artist Eugénia Mussa that will open in January 2017. Her texts have been published in Third Text and n.paradoxa: international feminist art journal, and in exhibitions catalogues and books from Centro de Arte Moderno / Gulbenkian Foundation, Centre Pompidou, and Tate Modern.

As a member of the Brooks Fellowship Programme 2017, while at Delfina Foundation Giulia will work with Tate Modern Curatorial (Middle East, Africa, Asia) on a research project on new curatorial and museological methodologies for exploring non-Western approaches to examining art history.
