At REDCAT she has worked with artists including Javier Téllez, João Maria Gusmão + Pedro Paiva, Allora & Calzadilla, Pedro Barateiro, Quinn Latimer, Hector Zamora, Andres Jaque among many others, and curated group exhibitions and public programs as Agency (Assembly: Before and After the Split Second Recorded) related to issues of copyright protection in ephemeral practices; Hotel Theory (2015), (curated with Sohrab Mohebbi) focusing on the performance of theory in contemporary art; Chalk Circles (2017), (an exhibition co-curated with Jose Luis Blondet), analyzing acting methodologies in the 20th century based on mixed traditions of movement and gesture, as well as pedagogic models.
