Lucia Pietroiusti is a curator working at the intersection of art, ecology and systems, usually outside of the gallery format.
She is the founder of the General Ecology project at Serpentine, London – a strategic, cross-organisational effort dedicated to the implementation of ecological principles throughout the Galleries’ public-facing programmes, internal infrastructure, and networks; and is currently developing the Institute for General Ecology as a distributed, independent organisation. Pietroiusti is the curator of Sun & Sea (Marina) by Rugile Barzdziukaite, Vaiva Grainyte and Lina Lapelyte, the Lithuanian Pavilion at the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia (and 2020-2022 international tour). She is the curator of the second edition of POWER NIGHT at E-Werk Luckenwalde, titled Being Mothers, in 2021/2022. Together with Filipa Ramos, she will be the curator of the 8th Biennale Gherdeïna, Persons Persone Personen, in May 2022.
