Patricia Margarita Hernández is a curator and researcher based in Brooklyn, NY. Her work, which is often grounded in collaboration, focuses on the intersections of digital technology, climate change, and feminist theory. Most recently, she was an assistant curator at Dia Art Foundation, New York, NY. Hernández also held the position of Associate Director at A.I.R. Gallery, Brooklyn, NY, the first artist-run collective dedicated to feminist practices within the United States. At A.I.R., she co-curated exhibitions such as Dialectics of Entanglement: Do We Exist Together? and The Scalability Project. Since 2015, she has been a founding member of Alliance of the Southern Triangle (A.S.T.), an art and design initiative that employs the art field as a platform from which to broaden interdisciplinary collaboration with a focus on urbanism and sea level rise. Its members include Diann Bauer, Felice Grodin, and Elite Kedan. Recent exhibitions with A.S.T. include Intertidal, ArtCenter South Florida, Miami, FL (2018) and Sharjah Biennale 13, Sharjah, UAE (2017). Hernández holds a master’s degree from the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.
Patricia Margarita Hernández is a participant in the Artis Curatorial Residency Program, which provides New York-based curators and writers with an opportunity to carry out research that brings contemporary visual artists from Israel into dialogue with their own research topics, while being immersed in a dynamic arts community at a partner New York-based residency program. Artis works closely with each Curator-in-Residence to help develop the scope of their research and make connections to arts practitioners and cultural organizations from Israel. Residents develop a final project to culminate their participation in the program, which can take the form of an exhibition proposal, essay, online publication, or digital project.
