Independent writer and curator, Maria Dolfini was born in Milan, Italy and temporarily based in Taipei. Echoes of Art is a platform to share art, writing and curatorial projects with a particular focus on Chinese and East Asian art. Passionate about the untold stories behind the artworks, she is currently working on the bilingual and co-authored project on East-Asian contemporary arts:  “Artists Leading the Way | Taipei Artist Village: Exclusive Interviews with Artists-In-Residence". 

After living in Beijing and exploring the Chinese contemporary art world through interviews and research, she recently graduated with a First-Class Honours BA combined degree Chinese (Modern and Classical) and History of Art from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London.

Her research mainly focuses on the relationship between gender, the body and architecture in contemporary Chinese visual culture.
