Ariana Kalliga (GR/UK) is a curator and researcher based in Athens. Her work focuses on modes of cultural production that combine theory, architecture and contemporary artistic practice. Past curatorial projects have explored the function of contemporary art within urban spaces, architecture and preservation, archives and memory, and the cartographies of diaspora and identity. More recently, the publication/toolkit Artist-Run Dialogues (space52, 2022) considers institutional infrastructures and new forms of transnational solidarity between artist-run and non-profit spaces. Ariana is a graduate of Oxford University’s History of Art Department and has previously worked within MoMA’s Department of Architecture and Design, the Norman Foster Foundation, Madrid, and the Museum of Modern Art/TBA-21 Academy, Dubrovnik, among other cultural institutions and international non-profits.
She has collaborated with museums and independent spaces on exhibitions, public programs and screenings both in Greece and internationally, and in 2021 she co-curated the group exhibition Never Cross the Same River Twice with Kisito Assangni, which received the support of NEON Organization and PCAI. Recent residencies and curatorial programs include: the SixtyEight Art Institute Curatorial Intensive (Copenhagen), the WCSCD curatorial program (Serbia), and the G. & A. Mamidakis Foundation Research Residency (Crete). She has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2022) in curating.
