I am a researcher, art curator, and writer. I am interested in post and decolonial discourses within contemporary art from the Global South, mainly from Africa and Latin America and their diasporas, and how they navigate and resist the trends set by Globalization. My research also focuses on women's experiences and notions of transnational feminisms and how these are presented in contemporary art. 

 

I have more than ten years of experience working as a freelance curator and art writer

collaborating with mainstream art institutions in Valencia, Málaga, Girona, Seoul, London, and Stockholm. I have curated the exhibitions of contemporary African photography Mohau Modisakeng: Beyond the Liminal Space and Regarding Ourselves at the Brunei Gallery, SOAS-University of London (2017), Más Morena by Javier Hirschfeld at the Cambridge African Film Festival (2015), the public programme of Migration: Traces in an Art Collection at Tensta konsthall in Stockholm (2019), and others.

 

I currently work as Assistant Curator at Photoworks, a UK arts charity and national development organisation for photography. I contribute regularly to the magazines Africanah, C&América Latina, Flash Art, and Radioáfrica Magazine.
