Yulia Usova, curator (Kiev/Stockholm)
Having background in
economics, practical experience in corporate PR/marketing, and a strong
interest in the arts and culture, Yulia Usova has graduated the Master
course in International Curating Management at Stockholm University in
The same year she received 4
months’ grant to study at the University of Ideas, Cittadellarte (City
of Arts) at Pistoletto Foundation, Italy. It gave her practical
experience in social responsible change through art and gave
possibility to develop and to realize new projects in Italy.
Her formal position as a
curator is also accompanied by projects and concepts, which though they
do not always seem to have a direct connection with curating, that she
feels are important in broadening the term and role, whilst widening
the range of possibilities of different types and definitions of work
in the field of art.
