Curator Talk: Manuela Moscoso
Join us for a conversation with Liverpool Biennial 2020 curator Manuela Moscoso.
Originally from Ecuador, Moscoso is currently the Senior Curator at Tamayo Museo in Mexico City. Her work and research focuses on artistic production that can articulate critical present endeavours, interrogating a linear history and univocal perspectives. She is part of Zarigüeya, a programme that activates relations between contemporary art and the pre-Columbian collection of the Museo de Arte Precolombino Casa del Alabado, Ecuador.
The 11th edition of Liverpool Biennial takes place 11 July – 25 October 2020.
Moscoso is part of Zarigüeya, a programme that activates relations between contemporary art and the pre-Columbian collection of the Museo de Arte Precolombino Casa del Alabado, Ecuador. Moscoso was the adjunct curator at the 12th Cuenca Biennial and the co-curator of the Queens International 2011 Biennial. In 2012 she was appointed co-director of Capacete, a residency programme based in Brazil where she also co-ran the curatorial programme, Typewriter. Moscoso has collaborated with CA2M, Di Tella, MAM Medellin, Museo de Rio, RedCat, Fundació Miró among other institutions. She has a master’s degree from the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Saint Martin’s School of Art and Design, London.
