Soledad García

She has been co-curator of retrospective exhibition of Chilean artists such as, Matta: Centenario 11-11-11 (CCPLM, 2011), Marta Colvin, desde el taller (Fundación Telefónica, 2007) and several collective shows with special interest on the urgent issues of unstable realities and the subjective experiences. She is co-editor of books Magic Block (2015); Essays on Visual Arts. Practices and discourses in the 70s and 80s in Chile, Vol. I –IV, (2011-2015, only in Spanish); Adam’s apple of Paz Errazuriz (2014).
