This books explores the work of Costa Rican artist and curator Virginia Pérez-Ratton, who is one of the key figures for the reformulation of cultural discourses on an international scale in the 1990s. Her work as critic, curator and manager introduced exhibitions, arguments, works and sensitive experiences built from Central America. This book proposes to review Pérez-Ratton’s contribution based on several aspects: her artistic work, her projects as an independent and institutional curator, her complicity and constant collaboration with women artists, writers, theorists and curators. The publication underlines how her work transformed the ways of reading and writing about the region, in dialogue with global debates and realities.
