Marina Noronha (Brazil) is a researcher and curator. Her research focuses on the role played by the processes of accumulation and deaccessioning in the formation and mobility of collections. As an independent curator, Marina puts forward the relationships between permanent collections and temporary exhibitions, including display methods that experiment with exhibition props and environmental features, such as light, sound and plants.

Marina is currently preparing a PhD in Collecting/Curating Theory at Aalto University, Helsinki. She has collaborated with institutions such as El Museo del Barrio, New York and Fundacao Municipal de Cultura, Brazil and has been the co-curator of exhibitions at Konsthall C, Sweden, Moderna Museet, Sweden and Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin.
