WHAT WE DO

We support the creation and development of new, existing and site-specific art exhibitions in Canada and across the globe. 

 

We offer two sides of curatorial practice: creative development and research of a curatorial project; and project management, exhibition design, communication and handling curatorial procedures.

 

We provide curatorial framework development, installation assistance, insurance advice, documentation, and commissioned critical essays to accompany projects and exhibitions.

 

 

About Us

Claudia Arana / claudiaaranab@gmail.com

Claudia Arana is a professional curator specializing in accessible, community-engaged projects. In addition to the MFA degree from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia, she studied Art Theory and Critical Thinking at the School of Visual Arts and Advanced Critique at the International Centre of Photography, both in New York.


In Canada, she has established a unique curatorial practice, with work oriented to diverse socio-political spectrum in the Canadian context. In the past two years, she has worked with newcomer artists, artists of African American backgrounds and artists who identify as visible minorities, providing a viable and inclusive platform on behalf of government and non-profit organizations.
