Elena Forin is an independent curator and a member of IKT (International Association of Curators of Contemporary Art). Her approach combines the interest for the most recent artistic developments – video, installation, performance, site-specific and social practices - and for their historical roots of the 60’s and 70’s.
Between 2009 and 2011 she curated various exhibitions for MACRO (Museum of Contemporary Art Rome) including solo shows dedicated to Urs Lüthi (with L.M. Barbero), Jacob Hashimoto, Jamie Shovlin, Sarah Braman, Esther Stocker and Riccardo De Marchi (with L.M. Barbero), and the special projects by Arcangelo Sassolino, Arthur Duff, Carlo Bernardini and Giuseppe Stampone. With LaRete Art Projects she curated group shows like Click or Clash? Strategies of collaboration (Marco Giovani, Niklas Goldbach, Yves Netzhammer; with J. Draganović), Ready to jump? (Triennale, Milano), ZOOM IN (Special Project and Award) and Video Lounge: NBK, Neue Berliner Kunstverein (Art Miami, Miami, FL), and solo presentations of Suara Welitoff, Silvano Tessarollo (with J. Draganović), David Rickard and Roberto De Pol.
She is coordinating Talk | Show, a cycle of talks on site specificity, (Galleria civica di Modena), she collaborates with international institutions like the Kunsthalle Osnabrück (Germany) and the Łaźnia Center for Contemporary Art (Gdańsk, Poland) for scientific and curatorial projects, and with independent spaces.
