Maja Vardjan is an architect and curator. Following her time as creative director of the T5 Project Space gallery and the architecture editor of Ambient magazine, she now works as curator of architecture and design at the Museum of Architecture and Design (MAO). She is the author of the publication “Design in Dialogue” and curated the “Silent Revolutions: Contemporary Design in Slovenia” touring exhibition (MAO, 2011-2015). She also curated “Under the Common Roof”, an exhibition on modern public buildings drawing from MAO’s archive (MAO, 2013) and has served as a contributor and editor of several books and catalogues. Maja Vardjan deserves much of the credit for the major changes and overall success of Ljubljana’s recent iterations of the Biennial of Design. Together with Jan Boelen and Cvetka Požar she co-curated the 24th Biennial of Design, BIO 50. In honour of BIO’s 50th anniversary, the team managed to change the focus and path of Europe’s oldest design biennial and to influence the traditional thinking behind and perception of the role of international biennials today. Most recently, she curated the exhibition Saša J. Maechtig: Systems, Structures, Strategies (MAO, 2015).
