Catalina Lozano is the Chief Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Basque Country, Artium Museoa. The analyses of colonial narratives as well as the deconstruction of the modern division between nature and culture have been departure points for many of her recent curatorial and editorial projects, including the exhibitions Until the Songs Spring (Mexican Pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennial, co-curated with Mauricio Marcin), A Natural History of Ruins (Pivô, São Paulo, 2021), The willow sees the heron’s image upside down (TEA, Tenerife, 2020), Le jour des esprits et notre nuit (CRAC Alsace, Altkirch, 2019, co-curated with Elfi Turpin), Winning by Losing (CentroCentro, Madrid, 2019), Ce qui ne sert pas s’oublie (CAPC, Bordeaux, 2015), A Machine Desires Instruction as a Garden Desires Discipline (MARCO Vigo, FRAC Lorraine, and Alhóndiga Bilbao, 2013-14), and the book Crawling Doubles: Colonial Collecting and Affects (B42, Paris), co-edited with Mathieu K. Abonnenc and Lotte Arndt. In 2018, her book The Cure was published by A.C.A. Public. She is the curator of Amarantus by Mariana Castillo Deball (MUAC, Mexico City, 2021 and Artium Museoa, Vitoria-Gasteiz, 2021).
