Look Who's Talking: Oscar Murillo & Zoë Gray (EN)
Zoë Gray (°1978, UK) lives and works in Brussels, where she has been appointed senior curator at WIELS since 2015. There, she developed a programme of innovative and engaged exhibitions that is both locally anchored and has international appeal.
She previously worked in France as artistic director of the Rennes Biennale (2014) and as project manager for the LUMA Foundation in Arles (2012-2013). She also worked as a curator at Kunstinstituut Melly (formerly known as Witte de With) in Rotterdam (2006-2012) and organised several international exhibitions as a guest curator. She writes regularly on contemporary art and is a member of CIMAM (International Committee for Museums and Collections of Modern Art) and IKT (International Association of Curators of Contemporary Art), where she was also vice-president from 2011-2014. Among others, Gray is a member of the general assembly of La Loge (Brussels), KIOSK (Ghent) and of the advisory committee for Mu.ZEE (Ostend).
Oscar Murillo (°1986, CO) lives and works in various locations. He earned a BA in Fine Arts at the University of Westminster in 2007 and an MA from the Royal College of Art, London in 2012. In 2019, Murillo was one of four artists to collectively be awarded the prestigious Turner Prize. Oscar Murillo is one of the most significant and inventive artists of his generation and after his memorable intervention in the 2017 thematic exhibition The Absent Museum, WIELS is proud to invite him back with Masses, a solo presentation that includes new and existing works.
