In 2014 Carmen directed the Untitled fair in Miami Beach and worked as Director of Special Programs for the Bienal de las Fronteras, in Matamoros, Mexico.
In April of this year, Carmen founded an organization Curatorial Program for Research. CPR focuses on introducing cultural localities, the versatility of artistic practices and production realities in order to enable and facilitate for the professional development of participating curators. For Curators and by Curators, CPR was established in 2015, with headquarters in Indianapolis and Stockholm.
