An internationally acclaimed curator, Rodríguez most recently served as the director of CAPC Musée d’art Contemporain of Bordeaux from 2014–18, where the core of her project was to consolidate the museum as a platform for knowledge through the exhibition, cultural, and educational programmes. To this end she oversaw important retrospective exhibitions for artist such as Judy Chicago, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Franz Erhard Walther, and Beatriz Gonzalez as well as site specific commissions for the nave of the museum with Danh Vo, Leonor Antunes, Rosa Barba, and Naufus Ramirez Figueroa. Prior to Bordeaux, Rodríguez served as chief curator at the Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporaneo (MUAC) in Mexico City and chief curator at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y Léon (MUSAC) in Spain. Her curatorial and research practice has dealt with a wide array of topics and interests, including the appropriation of public space in art, design, education, architecture, and urbanism as well as the links between artistic production in its historical, political, and social contexts.
