Currently, she holds the position of artistic director at the Matadero Madrid Center for Contemporary Creation.

 At the CCCB, she was the impetus behind a new line of projects that, under the name Beta Series, combine artistic and cultural creation with scientific research and social innovation, for example “Big Bang Data” (2014-2015) and “Human+: The Future of Our Species” (2015-2016). Currently, within this framework, she is directing the exhibition “After the End of the World”, which tackles the climate crisis from the arts, speculative design, literature and research (October 2017-April 2018). 

Among other projects at the CCCB she has also directed the exhibitions “Metamorphosis. Fantasy Visions in Starewitch, "Švankmajer and the Quay Brothers”(2014) and “Sebald Variations” (2015) and was co-curator of  the exhibition “One Thousand Square Metres of Desire”, on architecture and sexuality (2016-2017).

She has over twenty years of experience in the conception and management of exhibition and cultural dissemination projects in the fields of art, architecture, film, literature and contemporary thinking. She has worked as a contents consultant and manager of diverse exhibition and publishing projects for different national and international artistic and cultural institutions. She has been adviser for several editions of the Gutun Zuria International Festival of Letters of Bilbao.

As a curator she has mainly focused her research on and written about Russian art and culture of the 20th and 21st centuries, with highlights including interdisciplinary exhibitions and the publication of “La Caballeria Roja, creación y poder en la Rusia soviética 1917-1945” (Red Cavalry, Creation and Power in Soviet Russia between 1917 and 1945, Casa Encendida, Madrid, 2011). Among her exhibition projects related with avant-garde Russian art, highlights include the organisation of the following exhibitions produced in collaboration with other international specialists: “Kazimir Malevich” (La Pedrera, Barcelona and Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao, 2006); “Rodchenko. The Construction of the Future”(La Pedrera, 2009); “Gustav Klutsis. At the Forefront of Constructivist Art” (Córdoba City Council – Cajasol, Seville, 2009).
