Lucia Pietroiusti is Curator of General Ecology at Serpentine Galleries, London; as well as the curator of Sun & Sea (Marina) – the Lithuanian Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale (and international tour). She will be the curator of “Power Night” at E-Werk Luckenwalde (2021) and a curator of the 2020-2021 Shanghai Biennale (with Marina Otero Verzier, You Mi and Filipa Ramos. Chief Curator: Andrés Jaque) and Helsinki Festival 2022-2023 (with James Bridle). Current projects include the recurring festival on consciousness across species, The Shape of a Circle in the Mind of a Fish (with Filipa Ramos), the publication, More-than-Human (with Andrés Jaque and Marina Otero Verzier) and the publication and research project, Microhabitable (with Fernando García-Dory, Matadero/Madrid and INLAND/Campo Adentro). At Serpentine, Pietroiusti founded and runs General Ecology, a strategic effort to embed environmental subjects and methods throughout the Galleries’ outputs and networks, as well as Back to Earth, gathering 65+ artist campaigns for the environment. The General Ecology Network, currently in development, convenes 100+ individuals and organisations across disciplines to prototype artist-led, environmentally driven systems change and bridge the knowledge/translation gap between culture, creativity and ecology. Pietroiusti was the co-founder, and is currently co-curator and co-presenter, of the Serpentine Podcast.
