Catalina Tuca is a multidisciplinary visual artist, educator and independent curator, born and raised in Santiago, Chile.
After earning a BFA and a degree in Art Education, she developed her career in Santiago, showing her work in solo and group exhibitions since 2004. She worked on several education projects teaching Visual Arts from lower to high school, and Latin American Film in higher education. In 2012 and 2014 she co-founded and co-directed Oficina Barroca Gallery and CANCHA_Santiago Residency Program. Seeking to amplify her perspective as well as net-work of collaborators and audience, Tuca participated in several art residencies abroad in Japan, Colombia, and the United States.
Following these experiences, she decided to pursue an MFA at Rutgers University from where she recently graduated. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
