Christine Clément

Contemporary artist and curator, she was born in the Argentine Republic and is resident in Chile for 25 years.
She is graduated as Graphic Designer and continued her studies in Fine Arts and Art History.
She worked for publishers and took Marketing courses in the University of Oxford.
Upon arriving in Chile, she studied Art at the Catholic University and began working in cultural management, which led her, over the years, to found the Atelier4 Gallery, thus beginning her career as a gallery owner.
Meanwhile, her artistic career continued to develop, winning awards in Milan, Venice and Shanghai, among others.
As a cultural manager, she received the "Cruce de los Andes" Award from the Ambassador of the Argentine Republic in Chile, Mr. Ginés González García, for her cultural work between both countries and in particular for the event created by her entitled "Bridge" that unites through art to two brother countries (Argentina and Chile) thus building, in some way, an imaginary bridge.
In 2010 she traveled to the city of Madrid to study Curatorship, being at that time one of the few curators in Chile.
In 2015, following a trip to Punta del Este, she visualized the possibility of creating a platform for the dissemination of art in Chile. For this, she associates with Bernardita Garib to try to give it shape.
Thus, in 2016 they managed to carry out the first version of the Artweek Fair, with Christine being the curator of said event and its Director together with her partner.
Christine is currently dedicated to the Artweek Fair, curating work and her own artistic work
