Daría Sól Andrews

Daría Sól Andrews works as an independent curator and art critic and is currently based in Reykjavík, Iceland. She works as Associate Director at Listval gallery in Reykjavík. In 2021 she attended the Whitney Independent Study Program as a Curatorial Fellow in New York. She holds a MA in Curating, Art Management and Law from the University of Stockholm and a BA in Rhetoric from UC Berkeley. In 2017 Andrews founded her home gallery as curatorial director of Studio Sol, where she renovated a warehouse building and presents exhibitions in a living room, home based setting. Most recent curatorial projects include in/stasis, group exhibition at Artists Space, NY, Whitney ISP (2022); Tracing Fragments group exhibition at Gerðarsafn Museum (upcoming), and Uncanny Virtuality group exhibition at Hafnarborg (upcoming).

This residency would allow me the time and focus to write and continue research for three curatorial projects I am developing. These three proposals include an exhibition exploring materiality and the body, a project centered around sound art, and finally a proposal examining movement, gendered and black and brown bodies, power structures, and silenced histories. This residency would also allow me the opportunity to reconnect with artists in Helsinki and use the space and context of the HIAP residency to explore possibilities of collaboration.
