Swab 2021 Curator Talks with Marie Elena Angulo

Swab Barcelona talks to the members of the 2021 selection committee.
Today we speak with… Marie Elena Angulo

Swab Barcelona is proud to present its selection committee, which will be in charge of selecting the international and national galleries that will be part of the program of its 14th edition.

Attorney at law specializing in financial matters, art collector and patron of the Contemporary Art Society in London. She is a member of the Board of Oolite Arts, one of Miami’s largest visual artist support organizations.

In a single sentence, how would you describe your collection?
Our collection is focused on works on paper from all over the world from the ’90s onwards.

What are three traits you look for in an emerging artist?
Skill, originality and consistency in quality.

What’s a piece of your collection you are currently obsessed with?
We like everything we have and we are not obsessed with any particular piece.

If you could give a piece of advice for emerging artists that are starting off in 2021, what would it be?
Don’t follow what is trendy for the sake of fitting in.

Tell us something a fair must and something a fair must-not for you to find it interesting?
A fair must consistently attract new galleries offering works of good quality.  It must not be just a collection of the usual suspects.

What are you looking forward to seeing in Swab 2021?
Interesting new galleries and artists that I don’t know.
