About me

I am experienced in assisting exhibitions, collections display and arts projects in a wide range of settings. I have experience handling fragile, large and/or valuable object. I installed 74 exhibitions in countries such as United Kingdom, France, Brazil and Portugal. I have previously worked for various galleries and arts organisations including La Maison Rouge in France (Paris). In 2017, I assisted the artist Christian Boltanski during the exhibition “Étranger Résident”. In Brazil, I integrated Pesquisa Guignard’s team and inventoried more than 60 artworks of the artist Alberto da Veiga Guignard. I completed my Master at the University of Coimbra in 2018 and my master’s research focused on curatorship and museums.
