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 March 2008.

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.
