Fernanda has worked as curatorial assistant for the 28th Sao Paulo Biennial (2008) and 12th Istanbul Biennial (2011), and was the Chief-registrar of Pinacoteca de São Paulo’s collection between the years 2013 and 2020.

As part of Delfina Foundation’s Collecting as Practice season and a Brooks Fellow in partnership with Tate, Fernanda will work with Tate’s Collection Management team to identify and select a group of Latin American artworks from Tate to be studied, discussed and presented as case studies to small audiences of museum professionals. These case studies will consider models for acquiring, lending, preserving, and managing collection works.
