Eve is an art critic and a writer. She comes from an interdisciplinary background (physics, fine art, literature, art history) and completed her PhD at Leeds (2011) on conceptual art and experimental exhibition strategies. Her work examines art’s social practices, multimodality and social semiotics. Eve has worked as a lecturer in Europe and Latin America, and has collaborated with art institutions as a curator, critic and artist in residence. She has recently returned from fieldwork in Brazil, and is working towards the publication of The Travel Diaries – Tales from Latin America. She has spent most of her life traveling and is intrigued by Amsterdam’s multinational and transcultural community, and vibrant artistic scene. She believes that artistic expression is a particular means for imagining and coming together; a window to the world meant to look outward but also, as Baxandall said, at how we are looking at the world.

In 2012 Vanessa moved to Amsterdam and graduated with her MA in Design Cultures. Before this, she was in Caracas, Venezuela, working as an architect. Trying to find parallel lines between such different contexts, she uses her diverse background to deal with questions of how arts, architecture, language and design influence society - and vice versa. She also has a special interest in hands-on experiences and a playful approach to learning. Since she moved to Amsterdam she has gained extensive guiding experience focusing on the culture of the Netherlands, from the man-made drying of the land to the civilization around it and how this society is expressed within the arts. Her interests in urban developments also lead her to be continually active as a symposium lecturer and author.
