CHILEAN CURATOR IS SELECTED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM WOMEN TO WATCH
Soledad García, a Chilean curator with a long trajectory in Chile and abroad, has been selected to participate in Women to Watch, a program developed by the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
Women to Watch promotes the work of emergent women artists who have not been sufficiently recognized by granting visibility and attention to their work both in their country of origin and globally. The topic of these exhibitions has changed every year since 2008. In 2015, the exhibition explores how the representations of plants and animals in the pieces selected reflect the political, the abject, and the sexual.
Soledad García was selected among five Chilean curators proposed by the Board of the Chile committee of the NMWA. She was charged with selecting five works by Chilean artists and then presenting them to the Museum’s curator, who will finally decide on the most suitable one for inclusion in the exhibition “Reconstructed Nature”, opening next year.
“It’s an honor to have been selected by the MNWA curators and a great challenge to think about these issues and be able to work with Chilean artists whose works merit being exhibited at the museum in Washington DC”, said the Chilean curator.
The National Museum of Women in the Arts developed this project with its national and foreign committees in mind. Every two years, the Museum hosts an exhibition of pieces by emergent artists, women working in various disciplines in the USA and other countries where Museum committees exist.
Curator and art historian, with experience in university teaching and research. She pursued undergraduate studies at Universidad de Chile and holds graduate degrees from Universidad Católica de Chile and Goldsmiths, University of London. She has curated several exhibitions, including some organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, the Salvador Allende Museum of Solidarity, the La Moneda Cultural Center, Matucana 100, the CCU Auditorium, the Telefónica Foundation, and Arts Council England, among others.
Since 2010, she has worked as Coordinator of the Visual Arts Documentation Center at the La Moneda Cultural Center.
