Sara Garzón (Colombia) is a Ph.D. candidate in Art History and Visual Studies at Cornell University. In her research, Sara focuses on practices dealing with decoloniality, temporality, and indigenous eco-criticism in contemporary Latin American art. Her most recent work on indigenous robotics looks at the intertwined relationship between environmental destruction, technology, and coloniality.

As a curator-in-residence at the Delfina Foundation, Sara will work on the project Notes for a Horizon-tality: Towards the Possibility of Becoming Together as an Assemblage, which is a collaborative editorial initiative that invites multiple world-making practices so that these can help us produce, once again, the possibility of the future. This is a project that is being developed with several Latin American artists and researchers and will be published on the Colección Cisneros’ online platform.

Sara is also part of the curatorial research group Collective Rewilding. Convened to think about platforms for unlearning, Collective Rewilding’s approach to cur(at)ing for a broken world proposes critical examinations and optical perspectives that can unpack histories of resistance, knowledge exchange, and networks of artistic solidarity against colonial and Anthropocenic structures of power.
