My interests span from contemporary art, curatorial activities, cultural programming, research, and the always present connection between art and politics. I have a passion for all that relates to the cultural heritage of Latin America which I try to include as much as possible in every project I work on.

I desire the professional experience at the cultural centers in Paris to obtain the level of competence necessary to work in cultural programming and research, but also to get to know the cultural exchanges occurring between Mexico, Argentina, and France, countries where I have lived and whose singular past and complicated present move me.

I have done research centered on the political role of art to gain a glimpse into this intrinsic relationship in a variety of works of arts or cultural projects. This experience has helped me to discover the power of art to change the thoughts of one or more individuals or a people, and the invisible strain that flows through and often moves the world.

  • Peter Hujar: Rialto

    The Ukrainian Museum
    New York, USA
    The Ukrainian Museum is excited to present the exhibition Peter Hujar: Rialto, opening on 2 May 2024. Peter Hujar (1934-1987) exemplified the downtown New York arts scene. He was born to an immigrant family, and his Ukrainian grandmother raised him exclusively in the Ukrainian language until he was 5 years old. His difficult and unstable upbringing in a troubled household influenced his artistry and vision significantly as Hujar turned to a career in photography. (more…)
  • Adrianna Ault: Levee
    Publication
    Void
    International
    Adrianna Ault was raised in New Orleans where a 350 mile levee system controls and holds back flood waters. This project began as Ault attempted to better understand the landscape surrounding the city, but evolved over the course of 5-years to encompass her changing family, journeys they took and the processing of grief. The levee became a metaphor for the barriers built in an attempt to ward off inevitable decline, and the onslaught of time and nature. (more…)
  • A Model
    Feb 9 – Sep 8, 2024
    Mudam
    Luxembourg
    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)
  • Imran Perretta: tears of the fatherland
    Mar 8 – Jun 9, 2024
    Secession
    Wien, Austria
    Imran Perretta’s transdisciplinary practice spans moving image, sound, composition, performance art, and poetry. His works examine questions around power, state surveillance, alterity, neo-coloniality, and the process of identity formation in young people of Muslim heritage in Western countries in the post-9/11 era. His approach to these concerns is informed by his own experience: as a British citizen with Muslim roots, he is familiar with the challenges his works grapple with. (more…)
