Yasmín Martín Vodopivec is a Ljubljana-based curator. Her practice is described as intrinsically committed, circumscribed in the field of socially engaged art, radical care practices and ecologies of curating. Her aim is to share dialogically significant projects that emphasise the relevance of art and its burden to overcome the unfathomable distensions that define our hectic, erratic reality. She strives to examine new, genuine and distinct art practises, which she aims to present in her own way, characterised by a creative approach and experimentation with exhibition formats, always trying to speak to today’s viewer. At the intersection of the poetic and the engaged, her curatorial path is increasingly gaining prominence.
As part of the Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts, she curated the retrospective The Anatomy Lesson by Regina José Galindo in 2013 and the solo show I don’t belong here by Hamja Ahsan in 2021. In 2017, she was a member of the curatorial collective of the 32nd Biennial. She has also been part of various committees in the visual arts, cultural mediation and international networking. In 2019, her project Švicarija: Community, Art and Nature received the Živa Award for the Attention to Visitors and Openness by the Forum of Slavic Cultures. She is also a lecturer of Cultural Management and Exhibition Production at the World of Art – School for Curatorial Practices and Critical Writing and a member of the Expert Committee for Visual Arts of the City of Ljubljana.
