Hello,

I am a researcher and curator interested in connections between art and architecture. My research is mostly devoted to questions of institutional critique, and how artists and architects have proposed experimental ways to explore the gallery as a space to address social and political issues. I have written about exhibitions, organizations for art and architecture, and about the work of artists and architects. I also have a keen interest in the relationship between history and territorial transformations, and how artworks propose new perspectives questioning collective memories and imaginaries.

I have a professional degree in Architecture and Urbanism from the University of São Paulo and a master’s degree in Critical and Curatorial Practices in Architecture from Columbia University GSAPP. I have years of experience in the elaboration and planning of exhibitions and public programs.

This platform presents some of my interests and a selection of projects I have worked on.
