Nuria Enguita: The museum, between the fine arts and the mass media

What can a museum do now? The contemporary art museum is torn between the many histories of art it examines, its decolonial imperative and a precise social, systemic function. The museum as a place of concealed revisions and potentialities of the arts, a driver of civil dialogue and a privileged mechanism for encounters between art, social movements and academia. 

Nuria Enguita has been director of the Valencian Institute of Modern Art (IVAM) since 2020. She was director of the Bombas Gens art centre in Valencia between 2015 and 2020 and artistic director of the Fundació Antoni Tàpies in Barcelona between 1998 and 2008. She was editor of the magazine Concreta between 2012 and 2020 and a member of the management team of the arteypensamiento programme at the International University of Andalusia (UNIA) from 2000 to 2014, as well as co-editor of the journal Afterall between 2007 and 2014. She was co-curator of the 31st São Paulo Biennial in 2014, Medellin International Encounter in 2011 and Manifesta 4 in Frankfurt in 2002. She also held the post of curator at the Valencian Institute of Modern Art (IVAM) between 1991 and 1998.
