Curator since 2000. I am a Venezuelan curator based in USA. Currently Creative Creator at The Chill Concept, an independent pop up museum with a curated collection of projects located in Wynwood Art District, Miami, FL. Before this new challenge, I managed for a decade the curatorial program at Hardcore Art Contemporary Space. Also, I have participated in 70 + art fairs around the world.
Nina Fuentes´s focus for curating art is based on creating exhibits as a platform for social activism and educational purposes in human rights, environmental issues, creative thinking and community engagement.
Curatorial projects include:
It is a public art project, which aims to promote video, film and performance among the wide audience and urban spaces. NMF was founded in 2006, and it would be held every year during October in Miami. With various art activities including screening, video mapping, audio-visual performance, workshop, exhibition and lecture, NMF weaves video arts into urban life and interacts with the audience, enabling a new possibility of public art.
Many times fashion designers have looked for inspiration in art, to create or recreate shapes, fabrics, colors and unexpected pieces. And this is a two-way road. Art also becomes fashion to explore new ways of exhibition. Art meets fashion to get to people, to walk the streets and catwalks.
