Ella Křivánek (*1990) is a Berlin-based curator.



Ella Křivánek (*1990), is an Australian curator based in Berlin, where she runs the exhibition space Holden Garage.

After graduating with a Bachlelor of Arts in creative writing and philosophy from RMIT University, in 2014 she founded a project space in southwestern Tokyo - Space Space - which remained in Japan until 2016.

Over the course of the following three years, Křivánek transitioned the physical gallery into a roving curatorial project, staging exhibitions in Melbourne, Johannesburg, and Zurich under the same name.

In 2019 she graduated with a Masters in Curatorial Studies from Zürcher Hochschule der Künste, and later that year moved to Berlin. In 2021 she founded Holden Garage, which has a program focussing on the curation of transnational exhibitions connecting Eastern European and Australian artistic practices to a German context.

Alongside the development of exhibitions her practice involves writing, research, teaching, and editing. All share a common focus: an interest in understanding and employing the power and influence of Fine Art.
