Una argentina asume como jefa de curaduría del museo MOLAA

The Museum of Latin American Art  (MOLAA ) in Los Angeles, United States, appointed  Argentina 's Gabriela Urtiaga as chief curator of the institution.

Graduated in Arts from UBA, Urtiaga takes on this new challenge. She leaves her work as director of Visual Arts at CCK, where she programmed exhibitions such as “Les visitors. Guillermo Kuitca's look at the collection of the Fondation Cartier”, and the current retrospective dedicated to  Julio Le Parc , “A visionary”.

The announcement was made by the president of the museum, Lourdes I. Ramos-Rivas, in a statement. He stressed that “MOLAA is developing innovative exhibitions and projects based on collaboration and contextualization of cultural programs of excellence. Urtiaga's arrival in MOLAA provides added value.”

“It is a huge challenge that I receive with gratitude and enthusiasm. I believe in a curatorial perspective that always looks forward. Where the permanent collection dialogues with contemporary expressions,” said the curator who has worked with artists such as Marta Minujín, Tomás Saraceno, Delia Cancela, Rimer Cardillo, Jean Michel Othoniel and Marie Orensanz.

Urtiaga, who was also selected as curator at the Curitiba Biennial 2020, will begin her work in a few days. The institution was founded in 1996 in Long Beach, California. She is a pioneer to focus on modern and contemporary Latin American art in the  United States .
