Zoe Lukov, 2009
Curator, Emmy-nominated producer, and writer Zoe Lukov develops non-traditional, experimental exhibitions that engage and respond to pressing issues in real time. Previously, as chief curator of Faena Art in Miami Beach and Buenos Aires, Lukov organized the first Faena Festival in 2018, its follow up in 2019, in addition to major solo exhibitions by internationally recognized artists throughout the Faena Districts. She is also a founding board member of Desert X, the nonprofit site-specific exhibition based in California, and recently produced a documentary about Desert X 2021 which premiered at the Getty Museum, aired on PBS, and was featured in the Palm Springs International Film Festival, the Riviera International Film Festival and nominated for an Emmy award.
Lukov’s independent curatorial projects such as Fair, an alternative all women non-commercial art fair that took place within a shopping mall, and Holy Water, have been widely lauded in the press and across creative communities. Lukov cut her teeth working with Jeffrey Deitch at MOCA Los Angeles and with Franklin Sirmans on Prospect 3, the New Orleans biennial. She was a 2010/2011 Fulbright Scholar in Colombia and is a graduate of Oberlin College.
