Angela Rui is a design curator and researcher based in Milan. She got her PhD in Exhibition Design at the Politecnico of Milan, Faculty of Architecture. She believes that design is positioned as a critical practice that problematises conventional ways of inhabiting and experiencing the world, and that designers could operate to recognize collective commons and to design for a more-than-human society. Among other projects, she recently curated the exhibition and program AQUARIA. Or the Illusion of a Boxed Sea at the maat (Lisbon, 2021); she co-curated I See That I See What You don’t See, the Dutch Pavilion for Broken Nature – XXII Triennale di Milano (2019), and Faraway So Close – the 25th Ljubljana Design Biennial (2017). She is currently teaching “Pedagogies of the Sea” at the GEO-Design Master programme – Design Academy Eindhoven (NL), Exhibition Design at the MA in Interior Design at the NABA (Milan) and Critica del Contemporaneo at the Università di Design di San Marino.
