Erica Petrillo (IT)
After co-leading the R&D Salon series at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, Erica worked as part of the curatorial team of the XXII Triennale di Milano, entitled Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival. Erica holds a Bachelor in Politics, Sociology and Psychology from Cambridge (2014) and a Master in Arts, Politics and Society from Maastricht University (2016). As a curator-in-residence at the van Eyck, she will explore a number of issues (of an ethical, sociological, semiotic nature) prompted by the invention of in-vitro meat meat – including the permeability of the artificial/natural divide; the alleged tension between traditions and technologies; the politics of naming and labelling surrounding food.
