Vanessa Carlos is the Director of Carlos/Ishikawa gallery in London, whose program focuses on international artists with wide-ranging, multidisciplinary and experimental practices. Artists represented by the gallery include Oscar Murillo, Korakrit Arunanondchai and Pilvi Takala. Carlos founded Condo in 2016, a project that takes its name from ‘condominium’ and is a large-scale collaborative exhibition of international galleries. Host galleries share their spaces with visiting galleries either by co-curating an exhibition together, or dividing their galleries and allocating spaces. The not-for-profit initiative encourages the evaluation of existing models, pooling resources and acting communally to propose an environment that is more conducive for experimental gallery exhibitions to take place internationally. The project was brought to New York in 2017 and will launch in Shanghai, Mexico City and São Paulo in 2018.
