Cecilia González Godino is a third-year PhD student whose research is focused on the analysis of Caribbean contemporary visual art from archipelagic, non-hegemonical frameworks. Her work engages epidermic and geological aesthetics as strategies of disorientation and resistance against colonial attempts to the figuration of Caribbean identities. Cecilia holds an MA in Latin American and Caribbean Studies from New York University and has several years of experience translating, copyediting, and assisting artists, librarians, and curators. She co-founded the Spanish publishing firm Circo de Extravíos in 2018, awarded with the Young Innovators Award by the Frankfurt Fair, and her first exhibition as curator will be held at Kelly Writers House in 2023.
