Nuria Enguita Mayo
****************************************************************

++++ Born in Madrid 1967. Graduated in Art History & Theory at the Universidad Autónoma in Madrid. Between 1991 and January 1998 she worked at IVAM (Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno), where from 1995 onwards and in the capacity of curator she organized exhibitions devoted to Cildo Meireles, José Antonio Orts and Juan Downey, among other artists. Her association with the Fundació Antoni Tàpies began in 1996 with her collaboration as co-curator of the Lygia Clark exhibition. In May 1998 she organized the group show Scattered Affinities held at Apex Art in New York and subsequently at Fundación Telefónica in Madrid. Other international collaboration includes her selection of films and videos of the sixties and seventies for the permanent collection of the Serralves Museum, the contemporary art museum in Porto which opened on 6 June 1999.

++++ From June 1998 to the present day she has held the position of Chief Curator at Fundació Antoni Tàpies, where she works in close collaboration with Spanish and also international curators. The exhibition programming at the Foundation has focused, on one hand, on artists working in the nineties on the recovery of experiences which entailed, in the seventies, a frontal attack on high culture, creating an anti-hegemonic practice in the social and cultural fields, as exemplified in the shows devoted to Renée Green, Rainer Oldendorf and Eulàlia Valldosera. Another significant guiding line has been the presentation of the work of artists from the seventies whose oeuvres have contributed to breaking the hegemonic discourse through reflections on Marxism, structuralism, psychoanalysis and feminism (Victor Burgin), thanks to the mass media (Andy Warhol) or via the link between art and life (Hans-Peter Feldmann).

++++ In line with these initiatives, other projects have been presented as detailed studies such as Archive Cultures and Inside-Out: El jardí del Cambalache, which deal with the acknowledgement of social and political endeavours closely linked to artistic practice which prompt a reconsideration of history proper (such as we find in the work of Jean-Luc Godard, Federico Guzmán, Chris Marker and Basilio Martín Patino, also presented at the Foundation). Nuria Enguita Mayo is Member of directorial team at UNIA (International University of Sevilla), in the program Art and Thinking.
