Biography / Tina Ziegler

Since 2008, Tina Ziegler has been a torchbearer for the urban and contemporary art movement, having spent the last 12 years as a professional curator and project director, advocating and supporting the art movement she loves.  Originally from California, Ziegler relocated to Barcelona after producing her first urban art exhibition in 2003 in a warehouse loft in Seattle, Washington. Her eight years in Barcelona were spent undertaking a Bachelor’s degree from the private design institute IED for Marketing and Business, publishing her first book Hunt and Gather Art and working as a creative director and curator for clients from SWAB art fair, Atticus Gallery, Volkswagen and Powerslide, among others.

In 2010, she was recruited to direct London Miles Gallery in West London and a year later joined forces with Moniker Art Fair. Since the fair’s humble beginning, she has additionally curated numerous exhibitions with renowned international artists in museums, private galleries and pop up spaces. In 2015, she launched her own business, The Art Conference, as an educational platform for the arts, shortly afterwards becoming the director and owner of Moniker Art Fair in 2016.  In the past few years, Ziegler has taken Moniker to the global stage under her management, and helped the fair quickly become the world’s most important art fair for the Urban and New Contemporary art movement, specialising in Immersive installations and quality curation. The fair now hosts annual events in London and New York as well as exhibitions in Berlin, Leeds and other European cities. Most recently, as Moniker director Ziegler has led work on the 10th anniversary fair,  held in London past October, while spending time focusing on the growth of Moniker CULTURE, a new arts platform dedicated to creating a collaborative effort between Urban & Contemporary art and climate activism.
