This week, we have Elisa Gutiérrez Eriksen on the show to talk about her curatorial practice including the current exhibition at Lydian Stater “Neither Here Nor There,” her experience working as a cultural specialist in Mexico, how she carved a path to the visual arts, NFTs as a medium rather than a container, her recent exhibitions in New York “Common Frequencies” and “Subversive Kin,” the merits of artists choosing a curator instead vice versa, her brief art practice, virtual reality as an expansion, and her collective approach to curation.
Elisa Gutiérrez Eriksen is a Mexican, Brooklyn based Curator and Arts and cultural producer who has collaborated with artists and institutions to produce and curate art pieces, exhibits, festivals and cultural events. As Cultural Specialist at the UNESCO Field Office in Mexico she developed projects and curated exhibitions concerning the relationship between culture and migration, audiovisual heritage, and the environment. Prior to that, she was Head of Exhibitions of the Alas y Raices program at the Ministry of Culture in Mexico. Elisa has also collaborated with the International Human Rights Art Festival in New York and the International Contemporary Animation Film Festival ANIMASIVO, among others. Most recently, she served as Programs Manager and Curator at the NARS Foundation while also developing independent projects; among them Subversive Kin: The Act of Turning Over, presented at The Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center in NY, and Common Frequencies, at BioBAT Art Space in Brooklyn, NY.
