Biography & Curriculum

SARA MALINARICH 

New Media Artist. Director of INTACT Project and Curator in Silpa Art (www.silpaart.com) in Paris, France.

Born in Santiago de Chile, Sara Malinarich is an independent artist and curator. As an artist, he started in painting, however, after his first trip to Europe and his studies in digital graphics, he continued his career in the field of art and new technologies. In the context of globalization, Malinarich brings communications technology to collaborative networked art. And in 2005 he founded the open source project INTACT, dedicated to the telecommunication creation through the Internet. Currently, this is a network of artists and creative centers that work collaboratively; perhaps the largest and most stable of the last decade in the area of ​​artistic telepresence. Among the latest activities of the INTACT Project is the programming of the BOT artist @Rachael_Runner: a twitter profile that interacts with users in real time, generating personalized graphic work with the mere fact of sending a tweet that includes a specific hashtag.

In parallel, Sara Malinarich devotes part of her efforts to research in her personal works, always related to the multimedia universe. Thanks to this constant activity, the works of this artist have taken place in numerous art centers around the world and she has participated in conferences in different universities and mediation spaces. In 2012 he received the 100Latinos at Casa de América, Madrid recognition award for innovation.

As an independent curator, Malinarich organized her first exhibition of graphic work in Spain, called “Nocturnidad y Alevosía”, in 2008. As of 2010 she is responsible for an art gallery in Madrid and is in charge of exhibitions of abstract artists from the likes of Viola, Jasper Johns, Feito, etc. When she moved to Paris in 2014, Sara Malinarich began to develop a project to represent Latino artists in Paris. To this day there are numerous exhibitions organized by painters, photographers and sculptors. Their events are usually held in art halls of Le Marais and Saint Germain-de-Pres. In June of this year, President Emmanuel Macron invited her to participate in an evening at the Elysée in the context of the Latin American Week 2018, in recognition of the cultural management of Malinarich in France.
