Denise Araouzou is a curator and writer.
Her practice is research-based and looks primarily at the mechanisms which inform our habits of working, consuming and resting in the post-digital age and in turn questions how subjectivities are disrupted and reproduced as a result. The various threads of research and interests take form as exhibitions, presentations, screenings and texts informed by cultural and social theories, anthropology, media culture, economics and architecture.

Currently she is a junior curator of Mediterranea 19, the upcoming Biennale of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean (BJCEM) to take place in San Marino (2020), and she is also the artistic director and curator at the Veronika Gyòcsi Collection. Simultaneously she is also developing her independent curatorial practice. 

Previously, she managed the non-profit exhibition space The Island Club (Limassol, Cyprus), founded and directed by artist Christodoulos Panayiotou. She organised  several exhibitions, among them: One Minute, One Hour, One Month… One Million Years, Kara Walker | Fall Frum Grace, Miss Pipi’s Blue Tale, Thraki Rossidou Jones | At Monet’s Garden, Dimitris Tsouanatos | I’m going to film the shadows, and Apostolos Georgiou | A Painting on Separation. She was a fellow of the transnational research program A Natural Oasis? (2018-2020), curated by Simone Frangi and Alessandro Castiglioni. She was a curator in residence at BAR project (2019, Barcelona) and a research participant in Future Climates, School of Redistribution organised by State of Concept and curators Antonia Alampi and iLiana Fokianaki (Athens, 2017). She is the founder of open form, an open studio and conversation platform established in Athens (2017).
