Corina Matamoros has been curator at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes of Havana, Cuba, for Cuban contemporary art since 1992. She is the originator of the renewal of the contemporary art collections of the museum, and she was responsible for curating the permanent exhibition of Cuban contemporary art when the museum was restructured in 2001. Matamoros is a recipient of the Cuban National Prize of Curating in 2008 for the exhibition Orbis: Homenaje a Walker Evans (by José Toirac and Meira Marrero). In 2002, she was awarded the Distinction for National Culture. She was fellow of the Rubin Foundation for writing a book on the Cuban painter Raúl Martínez, which she completed during a residency at the Vermont Studio Center (2010). Matamoros graduated with a degree in art history from the University of Havana and in Museology from the Ecole du Louvre in Paris, France.
