Curator and author Lisa Tronca will be discussing the meetings and exchanges that enriched her curatorial practice during her residency organized by Molior in April 2024 in Central Europe (Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia). For this occasion, Lisa will give a brief presentation on what she learned about the artistic scenes of these countries in the hopes that it benefits Montreal’s artistic community.

A convivial networking moment will follow Lisa’s presentation.

  • Espace Cercle Carré, 36 Queen Street, Montreal

Lisa Tronca (she, her) is a curator, writer, translator, and cultural worker based in Tiohtià:ke/Mooniyang/Montreal. In addition to a degree in translation from the Université de Montréal, she holds a BA and a MA in art history from the Université du Québec à Montréal.   Her master’s thesis research led her to specialize in the study and archiving of web-based artworks, as well as the curation of online exhibitions. She has carried our several notable projects, among which Uchronia|What if? (2017), Re|Search (2020), S’éclipser|Phases of Resilience (2021), and Bureaux-écrans d’écrivain·e·s (2022). She has worked within several research groups and cultural organizations, including Laboratoire NT2, MOMENTA Biennale de l’image, and Galerie de l’UQAM, and currently holds a position at ESPACE art actuel magazine.

As an independent curator and writer, she regularly collaborates with artists, curators, exhibition spaces, and art magazines in the context of exhibitions, publications, public talks, juries, and podcasts. Her recent texts have been featured in Esse arts + opinionsVie des arts, and Zone Occupée, among others. Her projects unfold at the intersection of contemporary and digital art, online and physical space, and focus on interdisciplinary and socially engaged practices. She is particularly attentive to questions relating to space and borders and is drawn to artists working across media and outside the dominant visual regime. Her upcoming curatorial project, scheduled for September 2024, will be held at the Stewart Hall Art Gallery in Pointe-Claire.

Lisa Tronca is a member of Ada X, AICA Canada, Repaire, and Saloon Montreal.
