Manuela Moscoso (b. 1978) is an independent curator based in Rio de Janeiro. Moscoso’s curatorial practice focuses on generating research, new comissions and display. Whether organizing exhibitions, initiating a artist-run-space, launching an online platform or a residency program, she sees collaboration as an integral part of her practice.

Together with Sarah Demeuse are Rivet (www.rivet-rivet.net), a curatorial office focused on object-oriented thought and its overlaps with artistic practice. This research has materialized in sequential research exhibitions and publications about generics and deployment, and resonance and repetition, such as “Resonance” at the Goethe Institute New York, “Resonance and Repetition” at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts and a talk at Vera List Center for Art and Politics (all events winter 2012, New York). Moscoso holds an MA in Curatorial Studies at the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design, London.
