arts manager | producer | curator | artist
Miami-based Susan Caraballo has over 20 years of experience as an arts consultant, producer, and curator. Susan formerly served as Artistic Director at ArtCenter/South Florida (now Oolite Arts) after having worked with the Contemporary Arts Project at Vizcaya Museum, the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation, and running an independent arts space Artemis/PS 742 for many years. In 2016, she began to focus on social issues with the exhibition “The Future Isn’t What It Used To Be” presented originally at ArtCenter and subsequently at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. Recently, Caraballo organized a symposium at the Pérez Art Museum Miami, “ARTiculating Sustainability: Resilience in the Climate Crisis?” as part of the annual Congress of the IKT International Association of Curators of Contemporary Art.
Currently, she is exploring her own artistic practice through the intersection of curating, directing, and collective artmaking while focused on the ecological crisis. This interdisciplinary practice is grounded in her experience in curating and her interests in film, performance, and creative writing. Susan is a resident artist at the Deering Estate and Live Arts Miami.
