About Faena Art
FAENA ART is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that houses and produces post-disciplinary and time-based experiences. A catalyst for innovative, site-specific, and immersive creative practices, Faena Art is a transformative bridge across the Americas, between the south and the north, the popular and the experimental. Faena Art fosters new models for performative social interaction that transcend the traditional boundaries of art, science, philosophy, and social practice.

Given their spatial features, unique in Argentina and in Miami Beach for their size and style, Faena Art Center and Faena Forum call on local and international artists, designers and film-makers to plan site-specific works that interact not only with their monumental architecture, but with the cultural and urban conditions that make up their immediate context.

Zoe Lukov is an independent curator and performer born and raised in New York City. She currently works as Chief Curator at Faena Art in Miami. Previously, she worked Inernational Liaison for the Bienal Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo de Cartagena de Indias, Project Manager at Jeffrey Deitch, Inc. and Curatorial Coordinator the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art (LA MoCA). She completed a 2010 Fulbright fellowship in Colombia where she explored the changes and continuities in both traditional and contemporary performance nationally working towards a re-imagining of cultural and political cartography. Zoe was honored to receive a 2009 EMERGENYC fellowship which allowed her to become completely imbedded in the Hemispheric family, from her beginnings as an intern to her eventual turn as Program Coordinator of the Hemispheric Institute’s Encuentros. Zoe’s curatorial projects focus on supporting the creation and dissemination of art that is both politically and socially relevant. Besides her work at the LA MoCA, she has organized various exhibitions in New York City at Skylight Projects gallery in Chelsea, the Abrazo Interno Gallery at the Clemente Soto Vélez Center, Keyes Art Projects and Gallery Bar.
