Maria-Thalia Carras’ curatorial work
In 2004 Carras co-founded the nomadic non-profit arts organization locus athens, which has been curating exhibitions, talks, screenings and educational programs, with an emphasis on the production of new artworks for Athens’s public space. In 2018 she co-curated Geometries, a large-scale exhibition with a parallel public program hosted at the Agricultural University of Athens. In 2019, she was a founding member of project space TAVROS, situated in the Athenian suburb of the same name, wanting to establish a new arts institution that would promote creative collaborations and serve as a hub for various micro-communities, always researching key political and social issues. She has also worked as a film producer – she produced, for example, Naeem Mohaiemen’s Tripoli Cancelled (shortlisted for the Turner Prize 2018), Didem Pekün’s Araf (Sarajevo Festival Human Rights Award 2019) and Disturbed Earth (2021), also directed by Pekün. In 2021 she served as a member of the jury of the 23rd Thessaloniki Documentary Festival.
