Bio / Statement:
Luciana Solano is an Independent curator working in Brazil and New York. Solano is particularly interested in site-specific projects that introduce relationships between the viewer and physical-spatial configurations.
Solano is currently planning a solo exhibition by artist Ana Biolchini to be held at Solar Grandjean de Montigny, a landmarked Brazilian Neoclassic house constructed in the early 19th-century to bring new life to the arts and culture of Rio de Janeiro (October 2017).  This exhibition, a combination of installation, sculpture, video and mixed-media, creates an intimate conversation with the architecture.
In New York, Solano is working on the production of an installation of "Mechanical Unconscious" by visual artist Otavio Schipper and musician Sergio Krakowski.  It consists of a fictional communication between telegraph machines and telephones sounds to create a system for the transmission and translation of information.  Solano is also planning a new exhibition called Jiu-Chi by visual artist Gabriel Giucci.
