Rita Casdia


Lives and works in Milan. She graduated in painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Palermo in 2000, and subsequently completed a master's degree in art and new technologies at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in 2006.

Video animation, drawing and sculpture coexist in her works, which are characterized by a loose and uninhibited narrative, with strong symbolic and metaphorical values. Casdia explores the elemental dynamics at the base of emotional connections and sexuality.

She has exhibited her works at the Fondazione Pino Pascali (Polignano a Mare), the Fondazione Merz (Turin); the Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa (Venice), the 14th Cairo Prize, the Museo della Permanente (Milan), the MUU Gallery (Helsinki), the Museo Unicaja de Artes y Costumbres (Malaga) and in numerous private galleries in Italy and abroad.

Casdia's videos have participated in several festivals, such as the Prague Contemporary Festival, the Trieste Film Festival, the Video Art Yearbook (Bologna), the 39th Festival du Nouveau Cinéma (Montreal), the LOOP Video Art Festival and Fair (Barcelona).
