Research Curatorial Trip

The inaugural curator for this program is Joanna Warsza, independent curator, editor, art writer and educator. In January, 2023 Warsza will be arriving to Buenos Aires, where she will meet with local artists and visit various art spaces and institutions.

Joanna Warsza co-curated the Polish Pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennale in 2022, with the work of Małgorzata Mirga-Tas, the first Roma artist to be shown in any national pavilion. Since 2014, Warsza has been program director of CuratorLab at Konstfack University of the Arts, Stockholm. She has curated numerous biennials, city projects, exhibitions, and conferences, such as the 7th Berlin Biennale (as associate curator), Public Art Munich 2018, public program for Manifesta 10 in St. Petersburg or more recently with Övul O. Durmusoglu she co-curated the 3rd and 4th Autostrada Biennale in Prizren, Kosovo, 2021-2023 and Die Balkone in Berlin, 2020-2021. Following artist Agnes Denes’ credo that art “communicates the incommunicable,” “visualizes the invisible,” and does “not accept the limitations society has accepted,” Warsza’s practice supports art that gives form to the complex ideas of our times, in a context-sensitive and interdisciplinary manner.
