Fabiola Iza

Fabiola Iza is an independent curator, writer, and art historian. She holds a Master's degree in Visual Cultures from Goldsmiths College, University of London and a BA in Art from Universidad del Claustro de Sor Juana.

Iza has worked in the curatorial field since 2008, and was associate curator at Casa del Lago-unam from 2011 to 2013, an institution where she also coordinated the area of museography, the public program, and the publications program. The exhibitions she curated under that role revolved around archival practices and the construction of memory, bringing the local scene into dialogue with established and mid-career international artists.

As an independent professional, her projects have inquired about the concept of the archive, non-hegemonic historiographies, and cultural transmission, approaching them from feminist and decolonial perspectives. These exhibitions have been shown in museums, galleries, and independent spaces in Mexico, the United Kingdom, Spain, Switzerland, and Peru. She has received production and research grants from the Patronato de Arte Contemporáneo, FONCA–National Fund for Culture and the Arts, CONACYT–National Council for Science and Technology, Banco Santander United Kingdom, and the Mercosur Biennial Foundation, Brazil. She has done curatorial residencies in Buenos Aires, Porto Alegre, Lima and Paris. In the editorial terrain, in 2014 she started TEEORÍA, a collection of books on cultural theory published under the Taller de Ediciones Económicas label. This project has received grants from fonca and the General Directorate of Publications of inbal. Additionally, she is one of the Mexico City correspondents for Artforum.
