Tate is delighted to announce today that it has appointed Inti Guerrero

(b. 1983, Bogotá, Colombia) as its new Estrellita B. Brodsky Adjunct Curator of Latin American Art, to focus on further developing the representation of art from Latin America in Tate’s collection. Inti Guerrero will take up the post formally on 4th January 2016 for a period of three years. This post forms part of a commitment to develop Tate’s knowledge and expertise in Latin American art and Guerrero will be the fourth such curator at Tate (following Cuauhtémoc Medina, Julieta González and José Roca), working with Tate’s Latin American Acquisitions Committee and in collaboration with curators at Tate.

Until recently Associate Artistic Director and Curator at TEOR/éTica, an independent not-for-profit art space in San José, Costa Rica, Guerrero studied Art and Architecture History and Theory and General History at Los Andes University in Bogotá, Colombia and University of São Paulo in Brazil. He is also a former fellow of De Appel's curatorial programme in the Netherlands.

Guerrero has curated exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art of São Paulo-MAMSP, the Carrillo Gil Museum in Mexico City, the Museum of Art of Rio-MAR in Rio de Janeiro, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Vigo, the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Torino and Para Site in Hong Kong, amongst other institutions in Latin America, as well as in Europe and Asia. In 2014 he co-curated, with Shoair Mavlian, the exhibition Chronicle of Interventions at Tate Modern's Project Space, later traveling to TEOR/éTica. Currently he forms part of the curatorial team of Aún [Yet] the 44thSalón Nacional de Artistas, a major biennial exhibition that has taken place in Colombia since 1940.

Ann Gallagher and Frances Morris, Directors of the Collection at Tate, said: “We look forward to welcoming Inti Guerrero to Tate. His expertise and experience will be hugely beneficial to deepening our knowledge of art from this region.”

Inti Guerrero said: "I am honoured to have been selected to take up this post previously held by colleagues and curators whom I hold in great regard. I look forward to working closely with the Latin American Acquisitions Committee (LAAC) on expanding the scope of Tate’s approach to and understanding of Latin American art and on enriching the particularity and complexity of the institution’s collection. Since the early 2000s Tate has admirably pioneered the acquisition policies of contemporary art outside Western art canons, contributing to the establishment of a new mode of practice for international institutions."

Notes to Editors

Estrellita B. Brodsky

Estrellita Bograd Brodsky received her Ph.D. in Art History from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University (2009), and completed her dissertation on Latin American Artists in Post World War II Paris: Jesús Soto and Julio Le Parc. In addition to endowing Tate’s Adjunct Curator post since 2012, Estrellita has endowed curatorial positions in the field of Latin American Art at the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. She has been a member of Tate’s Latin American Acquisitions Committee since 2005. Estrellita lives in New York with her husband, Daniel Brodsky, a real estate developer who serves as Chairman of the Board of Trustees at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Acquisitions Committees

Tate’s global reach is supported by a number of Acquisitions Committees. Tate’s North America Acquisitions Committee (NAAC) has been operating since 2001. Tate’s Latin American Acquisitions Committee (LAAC) was launched in 2002, the Asia-Pacific Acquisitions Committee (APAC) was launched in 2007, the Middle East North Africa Acquisitions Committee (MENAAC) was launched in 2009, the Photography Acquisitions Committee (PAC) was launched in 2010 and the African Acquisitions Committee (AAC) was launched in 2011. Two new Acquisitions Committees were announced in November 2012: South Asia (SAAC) and the Russia & Eastern Europe Acquisitions Committee (REEAC).

Tate Americas Foundation

Tate’s Latin American Acquisition Committee is administered by the Tate Americas Foundation. TAF is an independent charity that supports the work of Tate in the United Kingdom. It does this by acquiring works of art – by gift or acquisition – and by raising money to grant to Tate. The charity was founded in 1987 when Sir Edwin and Lady Manton created the American Fund for the Tate Gallery, a restricted endowment to acquire works of art from North and South America for presentation to Tate.
