Jessica Berlanga Taylor is Chief Curator at Fundación Alumnos47, a non-profit organization in Mexico City dedicated to art and education. There she coordinates research projects and public programming such as Liminal Zones, a trans disciplinary, collaborative project that engages with the diversity of interactions between social art practices, Critical Pedagogy and Gender Studies; Proyecto Líquido, an open-ended curatorial project committed to exploring alternative curatorial formats and commission new performance art; and Sincrónico, a year-long workshop with established artists for emerging artists. An art critic and curator, she holds an MA in Art History and a specialization in Gender Studies, and has published in Frieze, Art Forum, national newspapers and magazines as well as catalogues and books. She was the editor of the online magazine re-d: art, visual culture and gender studies for The National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). She is interested in exploring the relationships between contemporary art and other disciplines such as critical pedagogy, gender studies, human rights and literature in order to imagine and materialize the present and nearby futures, where creation and collaboration lead the way.
