Claudia S. Preza is a bilingual curator focusing primarily on identity and counter-hegemonic initiatives within the US and MX border region. She strives to develop exhibitions and programming that present narratives of historically silenced individuals within the US art historical canon, such as the Latine and LGBTQIA+ community. With 10 years of experience working in museums and galleries, Preza has worked with various art institutions and holds an MA in museum professions with a concentration in Exhibition Development and a BA in Art History. Currently, she is the Assistant Curator at the El Paso Museum of Art.

“I want to give back to the border community that raised me and helped shape my identity. Using art to help convey a narrative is the best way to ensure everyone has access to a relatable story. Through NLI I hope to develop my skills to better serve my community.”
