Sofía is an art historian and Chicago-based independent curator. In her curatorial practice, she works with ideas of kindness as a form of labor to make art more accessible and horizontal. She often works in a participatory environment. In her research, she focuses on issues of ethnicity, identity politics, postcolonialism, and feminism and how these are told through history and storytelling.
Sofía Sánchez Borboa has held exhibition-making roles in the Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil in Mexico City, the Sullivan Galleries, and the Field Museum in Chicago. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Art History from Centro de Cultura Casa Lamm and a master’s degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Visual and Critical Studies. In 2021, she wrote a book, Anyone who has never been bored cannot be a storyteller, which will be published in May 2023.
