Sophia Sacal Smeke

(Mexico City, 1999) Curator. Sacal holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Art History from the Universidad Iberoamericana. She has studied abroad in Florence, Italy as part of an exchange program with New York University and in Madrid, Spain, where she received a Diploma in Cultural Management from the Universidad Complutense.

She has published several articles in both Mexican and international magazines, and has also spoken in various symposia, such as the SUNY New Paltz Undergraduate Art History Symposium (2022) and the Universidad Iberoamericana Art History Symposium (2021, 2022, 2023).

She currently works at Christie’s.
