Virginia Acosta

Uruguayan born Virginia Acosta comes with a rich experience and a vast knowledge of the Chilean artistic scene.

A graduate in Fine Arts with a specialization in Painting, Virginia worked at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice. During that time, she became the assistant curator to historian and art critic, Alicia Haber, the Uruguayan Commissioner for the 51st Venice Biennale in 2005. Virginia oversaw operations at the United States Pavilion - managed by the Guggenheim Museum.

In 2006, Virginia returned to Chile and joined Galeria Animal, one of the most forward thinking space for contemporary art in Santiago. She worked closely with its Director Tomas Andreu, a prominent and influential figure in the Chilean art scene. She later joined Ekho Gallery, the first space in Santiago dedicated exclusively to photography. Having recently moved back to Europe, Virginia now divides her time between London and Berlin. She has joined forces with CF-LART and collaborates on a rolling basis with Galeria Animal and Ekho Gallery.
