Lia Carreira (1985, Brazil) researches and develops methods and strategies in experimental curatorial practices. Currently, she develops research on practices of laboratorization and experimentation in Art and Technology, with a focus on the current wave of curatorial labs in the field. She is interested in mapping and analysing the formats currently implemented, as to understand what roles the lab and experimentation play and interplay with the roles ascribed to the exhibition space, to curators and to the curatorial as a whole. Moreover, her research addresses how the exhibition space can perform as a lab and, most importantly, how it can perform as a space for curatorial research and experiments.
