CCA Research Associate | 2020 | Borbála Soós
Borbála Soós (b. 1984, Budapest, Hungary) is a London-based curator. In 2012 she obtained an MA in Curating Contemporary Art at the Royal College of Art, London and in 2009 an MA in Film Studies and an MA in Art History at Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest. Between 2012 and 2019 she was director and curator of Tenderpixel, a contemporary art gallery in Central London. Throughout this period, as well as since leaving, she has also maintained an independent curatorial, writing and teaching practice, whilst she has been an active advocate, participant and organiser of artistic, curatorial and ecological research. She is regularly invited to give lectures, run workshops and teach by universities such as Goldsmiths College, the Royal College of Art and Central Saint Martins. Borbála’s recent research focuses on the development of structures found in nature and explores how these relate to social organisation. Her curatorial practice responds to, disrupts and enriches environmental thinking and related social and political urgencies.
