As Curator of the group show Over Nature, which toured six venues in Ireland and the UK between September 2019 and November 2020, she attempts to activate a new vision of greater ecological awareness and responsibility featuring six Irish and International artists.

She studied Semiotics at the University of Turin and Contemporary Art at the University of Genoa, Italy. Also, she attended the Postgraduate Diploma in Cultural Studies.
Curator’s Areas of Interest:
Valeria Ceregini’s curatorial practice is focused on the intersection of art, curatorial practice, activism and politics such as themes concerning social engagements (i.e. the current social and political changes, new gender identities, and life in times of ecological crisis).
She is interested in exploring the social vision and perception of our cultures and place in the world, as the consequence of an anthropocentric vision of the world and the increasing use of technologies in human interactions. In particular, she is delving into the idea of a progressive humanisation of Nature that is gradually losing its bio and geodiversity becoming progressively a cultural product of the Capitalocene era.
Furthermore, she is continuing her research on the abstract painting through its poetical emotions.
