Daniela Galán’s London career has been one brimming with significant challenges.

As a cultural manager, her great impulse and motivation was to work towards raising the exposure of outstanding Latin American women artists in the United Kingdom and Europe. As an artist, Daniela produces very strong, forceful work – both visually and contentwise – in which conceptual discourse is constantly intertwined with her defiant vision of the expressive potential of matter.

Joyful, inquisitive and open to all kinds of dialogue, Daniela is a dynamic woman and an activist who is fully committed to defending issues that are closest to her heart. This was best seen through her efforts to create a fair and balanced representation of the work of formidable Latin American women artists living in the diaspora, who face double discrimination on a daily basis – for cultural and gender reasons. For this Daniela began cultural projects filled with risk, optimism and a new sense of community, such as AMALGAMA and ‘Why is it Art?‘.

In this episode of Metralla Rosa, Carla interprets all the milestones of a short but very intense career. Daniela talks about her cultural idols, her doubts, her certainties and her most controversial insights into today’s art market. Enjoy this interview and discover why we dare to predict that Daniela will be an agent of true change and transformation of the arts inside and outside the Americas.

And now, enjoy the interview!

Daniela Galán, a Londra, ha maturato una carriera fatta di abbondanti scommesse.

Come responsabile culturale ha spinto e lavorato molto per conferire maggiore visibilità al lavoro delle artiste latinoamericane di rilievo nel Regno Unito e in Europa. Come artista, Daniela ha maturato un’opera solida e forte – sia nelle forme visive che nei contenuti – dove il discorso concettuale si interseca continuamente con una visione che vuole stimolare la riflessione sulle potenzialità espressive della materia.

Allegra, aperta, inquisitiva e disponibile ad ogni tipo di dialogo, Daniela è una donna d’azione e un’attivista pienamente impegnata a difendere le lotte che hanno conquistato il suo cuore. Ed è proprio come manifestazione del suo impegno di creare una giusta rappresentazione dell’opera di formidabili artiste latinoamericane nella diaspora, che affrontano quotidianamente una doppia discriminazione – per ragioni culturali e di genere – che Daniela ha dato vita a iniziative culturali piene di rischio, ottimismo e una nuova dialettica di comunità: AMALGAMA e ‘Why is it Art?‘.

In questo episodio di Metralla Rosa Carla percorre tutte le tappe di una carriera breve ma molto intensa. Daniela riflette sui propri idoli culturali, i propri dubbi, le certezze e le visioni più controverse del mercato dell’arte attuale. Goditi questa intervista e scopri perché osiamo prevedere che Daniela sarà un vero agente di cambiamento e trasformazione delle arti dentro e fuori dalle Americhe

Como gestora cultural su gran impulso y motivación ha sido el de trabajar en función de lograr una mayor visibilidad de la obra de relevantes mujeres artistas latinoamericanas en el Reino Unido y Europa.
