research + curating + art archives + artists’publications
During my professional career, I have developed a deep interest in contemporary art, with special attention to curating art practices related to archives as well as the use of underground artists’ publications as a means of expression. Currently living between Los Angeles and Barcelona, where I develop projects as a researcher and independent curator. I’m a member of the collective Vista Oral, with which I manage the exhibition space 56x45x25. In addition, I’m working as an external advisor and independent curator for the Archive of the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) and for YAXS (Ciudad de Guatemala). I’m also a member of Los Angeles Contemporary Archive (LACA) team —an artist-run archive and contemporary art programming space— and of Acid-Free Los Angeles Art Book Market.
