Rebecca Forster is a British artist based in Milan. Her practice focuses on sculpture and drawing, and her work incorporates plans, maps, architecture, and archaeology. She makes many references to places she has lived in or to cities she has explored, including New York, Verona, Bergamo, Nice, Zurich, Milan, and Piacenza. After studying sculpture at Norwich School of Art, Forster subsequently worked in Cyprus and Greece in the mid to late 1980s, before moving to Italy. In 2002, a Pollock-Krasner Foundation award enabled her to spend time in New York. She has exhibited in the UK, Cyprus, Greece, Egypt, the USA, and Italy. In 2000, she exhibited recent works at England & Co and also participated in the Gallery exhibition The Map Is Not the Territory. Forster has exhibited widely in Italy, where, in 2007, her contemporary works were exhibited alongside ancient Etruscan objects at the Archeological Museum in Piacenza.
