We talk Monica’s upbringing in a conservative Italy, her studies at Cal Arts and in Berlin, how meeting Isa Genzken at the University let painting slip away from her work, the creative power of feminine anger and the inclusion of all people working in a museum or institution in the planning of exhibitions.
