GARZON, Anamaría. Khôra or how to make curatorship a tropical (rain) forest. Índex [online]. 2017, n.4, pp.189-195. ISSN 2477-9199.

This essay presents a case study about Khôra gallery, based in Quito, to explore aspects of the curatorial work and methods of creative research. In the first paragraphs, the author formulates definitions around the notion of the curatorial, followed by an analysis of the conditions that determine the creation of Khôra and the theoretical frameworks that accompany the name of space. In a second moment, there is a reflection of the parameters of thought that covered the first four exhibitions hosted in the gallery, guided by the intention of provoking relationships and overflows. Finally, the text closes with a reflection on the possibility of creation of experimental models of research that arise when the exhibition is understood as a means of exploration that accompanies the development of creative production within an academic space.

Palabras clave : Curatorial; exhibition; research; academia; artists; experimentation.
