Juliana Steiner is an independent curator, writer and researcher who lives and works in between Bogotá and New York. Her most recent project includes “Holes in Maps”, a group exhibition that challenges maps’ certainty and stability through themes of globalization, trade, mobility and borders at 601 Artspace in New York. She is part of the collective Good to Know where they organize curatorial projects such as “La Bodega y Más”, a storefront exhibition in the neighborhood of Little Havana in Miami, where participating artists activated abandoned local businesses that once occupied each space. She co-founded Espacio Odeon, a contemporary arts center housed in an abandoned landmark movie theater located in the city center of Bogotá. Upcoming projects includes a solo show of the Puerto Rican artist Jorge González in Bogotá as the result of a two-week field project in Santander, Colombia. Steiner is interested in interdisciplinary practices in contemporary art that involve mass media, music, social sciences, and archival research. Steiner studied Artes Plasticas at Universidad de Los Andes and has a Master’s Degree from New York University.
