Elena Forin is an independent curator, a member of LaRete Art Projects and a member of IKT, (International Association of Curators of Contemporary Art). Her approach combines the interest for to the most recent artistic developments – video, installation, performance, new technologies, collaborations; participatory, site-specific and social practices – and for their specific historical roots of the 60’s and 70’s.
Between 2009 and 2011 she curated several exhibitions at MACRO (Museum of Contemporary Art Rome). She collaborated with many institutions (among these: Galleria D’Arte Moderna Achille Forti a Palazzo della Ragione, Verona, Italy; Galleria Civica, Modena, Italy; Elgiz Collection Istanbul, Turkey; Laznia Center for Contemporary Art, Gdansk, Poland) and independent/non for profit art spaces like Bartnik Projects Room in Osnabrück, Germany.
Since September 2017 she runs Today’s Special, a series of shows in her garden house, and You Are Invited for Lunch, a series of lunches and dinners on Skype fostering dialogue with artists, curators and collectors – avoiding the idea that physical distance is a bad condition for exchange.
For the Italian art fair ArtVerona she’s curating Sculpture&TheCity, a project devoted to public sculpture aiming to connect marble companies and artists, and she also operates as a VIP and Corporate Manager.
