Virginia Torrente

Virginia Torrente (Bilbao, 1963) is an independent curator. From 1988 to 1992 she worked as assistant director of the Madrid-based gallery and art book publisher Estampa, and from 1993 to 1999 co-ordinated exhibitions at the Colección Arte Contemporáneo de Madrid. During the time that she spent working as Chief Curator of the Museo Patio Herreriano of Valladolid (2000-2003), she designed solo exhibitions on the artists Juan Ugalde, Isidro Blasco and Jorge Barbi, among other projects. From 2004 to 2006 she was responsible for the Plastic Arts section of the Casa de América in Madrid, carrying out an intense programme of solo exhibitions of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American artists, almost all of which were designed and produced specifically for the Casa de América's exhibition spaces. Parallel to this, she worked as an independent curator for other art centres in Spain and Latin America. Since 1999 she has co-curated the independent project Doméstico, along with Giulietta Speranza, Andrés Mengs, Joaquín García and Teodora Diamantopoulos, which organizes exhibitions in places around Madrid not usually used for contemporary art. The work undertaken in Doméstico has been documented and published in 2005.
