As a research/curator, I am interested on the epistemologies of curating, especially on strategies for curating space, on critiques of techno-culture, and, more generally, on contemporary urban and visual cultures.
Since a few years, I have been engaged with accidented architectures, built environments and other manmade territories (as post-industrial spaces), developing multidisciplinary projects through fieldwork, laboratorial research and publishing in both academic and cultural venues. The research has resulted in exhibitions, practical projects and editorial work.
I have worked with different national and international organizations: as programmer for Architecture at Guimarães 2012 – European Capital of Culture (2010-2012); as a consultant of Lab´Bel, the french laboratory of contemporary art (since 2010); as co-curator of Alternativa, the contemporary art festival of Gdansk (2012); as co-curator of the public art biennial of Bordeux, Evento 2009 (2009); as curator and producer at the Rectorate of University of Porto (since 2006); as office coordinator and juri at member at the Laboratory of Experimental Art of Institut of Art of the Ministery of Culture (2003-05).
