Nina Mdivani is an independent curator and writer. Born in Tbilisi, Georgia in 1982, she lives and works in New York. She has studied International Relations and Creative Writing at Mount Holyoke College and NYU. Her book, King is Female, published in October 2018 in Berlin by Wienand Verlag and launched at the Frankfurt Book Fair, explores lives of three Georgian women artists and is the first book investigating questions of the feminine artistic identity in the context of the Eastern European historical, social, and cultural transformation of the last twenty years. Publication of the book was accompanied by the exhibition at the Villa Vessel Kunstverein in Iserlohn, Germany that presented Georgian female artists in their quest for authenticity and freedom. In 2019 Nina was selected as Curator-in-Residence at Kunstraum, Brooklyn. She is continuously working with several galleries and artists from Georgia, Europe, and the United States serving as a facilitator of various meaningful cultural exchanges.
