Ariana Kalliga is an independent curator and researcher based in Athens, Greece. Her research engages with the tentative geographies of the Mediterranean Sea, the temporalities of architecture and migration, material histories and archival silences, and the histories of small-scale institutions. Previously, Ariana has held positions within MoMA’s Department of Architecture and Design, NY (2018–2019), the Norman Foster Foundation, Madrid (2019–2020), and the Modern Art Museum, Dubrovnik (Tidalectics, co-organized by TBA21–Academy, 2018) among other organizations. Between 2020–2022, she served as the Curator-in-Residence of Space52 Athens, where she organized the Artist-In-Residence program, and curated several exhibitions and public programs, including the moving-image group exhibition Never Cross the Same River Twice (2021), co-curated with Kisito Assangni, which received the support of NEON and PCAI. She edited the publication/toolkit Artist-Run Dialogues (Space52, 2022), which considers institutional infrastructures and new forms of transnational solidarity between artist-run and non-profit spaces. Between 2022 and 2023, Ariana participated in residencies at Fondazione Pistoletto (Biella), the SixtyEight Art Institute (Copenhagen), and the G. & A. Mamidakis Foundation (Crete). She is the recipient of a Stavros Niarchos Foundation Curatorial Fellowship Award (Artworks, 2022-2023) and a NEON Postgraduate Scholarship (2023). She holds a B.A. in History of Art from the University of Oxford.
