Tania Mouraud (1942, France) is an unclassifiable artist of the French art scene who has never ceased to reinvent her practice since the late 1960s through the use of a variety of mediums. Her artistic career is interspersed with many solo and group exhibitions in France, particularly at the Saint-Étienne Métropole Museum of modern and contemporary art (2014), at MAC VAL in Vitry-sur-Seine (2014), at the Museum of Fine Arts in Nantes (2009), and at the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature (2008); and abroad, at the Slought Foundation (Philadelphia), California State University, and Fullerton Grand Central Art Center (Los Angeles). The first major retrospective of her work was held at Centre Pompidou-Metz in 2015.
