Juan Ferrer (1991) - New York-based, Chilean designer, artist and curator.

Since 2016 I have been directing and curating Museo del Hongo, in which my thrill for science and passion for art converge. Through my work, I question disciplinary boundaries by proposing new concepts in scientific engagement through artistic, immersive, and interactive experiences in a museum space. Bringing together an interdisciplinary team and audience to engage with the Fungi Kingdom, I was awarded for my essay El Museo del Hongo: cruce entre arte, ciencia y diseño in 2017 in Haz tu Tesis en Cultura contest held by the Chilean Ministry of Cultures, Arts and Heritage.
