I´m María Lightowler and I was born and live in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I currently reside in Madrid, Spain. With more than 15 years of experience in the art world, I can say that I have been in almost every corner of the complex art system: the gallery, the museum, art fairs, exhibitions and publications. Always with a professional perspective, my training as a museologist and art teacher led me to specialize in curating and cultural management for visual artists. As the famous Gilbert & George used to say, I like to be "in the art" from several places, accompanying the artist as an accomplice, focusing not only on the sale, but also on the diffusion of his work and accompanying him in his growth as an artist.
