Pablo José Ramírez is a curator, theorist, and art writer, currently splitting his time between Guatemala and Europe. He holds a master degree in Contemporary Art Theory, from Goldsmiths, University of London.
His research explores notions of translation, silence and future, engaging in conversations within postcolonial thought and different forms of memory. Ramirez looks for politically engaged practices, which tense the limits between non-rational and scientific knowledge. Between 2011 and 2014 he was the Executive Director and Curator at Ciudad de la Imaginación in Guatemala. He was co-curator of the XIX Bienal de Arte Paiz and on the last years he has been working internationally as Independent Curator and art writer. Some of his curatorial projects include: This Might Be a Place for Hummingbirds (CCA, Glasgow; UK, co-curated with Remco de Blaaij); The Party of Others by Terike Haapoja (CI, Guatemala); Guatemala Después, (co-curator, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, PARSONS, New York); Sobrenatural, (Extra Gallery, Guatemala) among others.
Currently, Ramirez is working on an exhibition project at Display in Prague based on issues of community and language, and on a web journal consisting on a platform for planetary postcolonial conversations on visual, sonic and aural cultures. The project will be launched by the end of 2018.
