In 2011 Art-iculate is pleased to invite London based Argentine curator Gabriela Salgado who will be presenting a lecture on Tuesday 29th November 2011.
Gabriela Salgado will present her curatorial practice departing from the idea of cultural borders, with references to Latin American artists and theorists. The talk will cover her independent projects as well as her institutional roles such as her tenure as curator of the Latin American Art Collection UECLAA, at Essex University (1999-2005) and her last role as curator of Public Programmes at Tate Modern (2006-2011) in order to analyse the institution’s collection policies as well as the hierarchies and formalities that separate the role of the curators in exhibition making and education roles and their relation with current artistic practice.
Gabriela Salgado is an Argentine-born curator based in London, UK. After obtaining an MA in Curating Contemporary Art at the Royal College of Art she has worked independently in the UK and Latin America. She has curated a large number of exhibitions and has organised international workshops, and residencies programmes in the UK, Greece, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Cuba, Colombia and Spain.
