Florencia Portocarrero

(Lima, Peru, 1981) Interdependent curator. Inside and outside institutions, her cultural practice intertwines writing, teaching, and organizing exhibitions and public programs. Her research interests focus on how to rewrite art history from a feminist perspective, the questioning of hegemonic forms of knowledge, and subjectivization processes in the context of the neoliberal economy. Originally trained as a clinical psychologist with a psychoanalytic orientation, between 2012 and 2013, Portocarrero participated in the Curatorial Program of the Appel Arts Centre in Amsterdam, and in 2015, she completed a second MA in Contemporary Art Theory at Goldsmiths University in London. She has lectured at various international institutions and her writings on art and culture appear regularly in specialized magazines and publications. In Lima, she has worked as curator of proyectoamil's public program (2015-2019); she was curatorial advisor to the Contemporary Art Acquisitions Committee of the Museo de Arte de Lima-MALI (2018-2020), and she is a professor in the Masters in Art History and Curatorship program at the PUCP. Since 2014, she has co-directed Bisagra.
