Alicia Chillida
curator, Madrid, Spain
October 15 - November 14, 2002
Alicia Chillida is a freelance curator based in Madrid, Spain. For twelve years (during two different periods) she held the position of Head of Contemporary Exhibitions/Curator at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Renia Sofia. In 2002 she was the Curator of the Spanish Pavillion at Sao Paulo Biennale and coordinated a curatorial project "The Light that Failed" - a painting exhibition and flamenco concert - which was staged at the Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem, Holland. She is currently working on several international projects - one of which is a group show in Spring of 2003 at a new cultural center in Spain called La Casa Encendida.

On November 15, 2002, Ms. Chillida organized a free dialogue at apexart to discuss the overlapping roles of artist, writer, curator and the intersections between museums, galleries, and independent spaces (pictured at right).

Ms. Chillida was recommended to apexart's fellowship program by Carlos Basualdo, a past apexart International Director.
