Catinca Tabacaru earned her bachelor degree from the University of California, Berkeley (2003) and her juris doctorate and masters in international law from Duke University (2007). She spent her graduate school years working for the UN International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda and the Office of the Chief Defense Counsel for the Military Commissions at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. She calls upon this human rights background to shape the conceptual frameworks of her shows, which have included explorations of gender, war, imprisonment and civil rights.

After two years working as a litigation attorney in New York City, Tabacaru started Women’s Voices Now, a provocative organization aimed at giving voice to women living in Muslim-majority countries through the medium of film (2010). She curated a collection of 99 short-films from 40 countries which was made freely available on the web and, at its peak, was watched in 176 countries. She passed on Women’s Voices Now to its new leadership (2012) to focus on her work as an art dealer and curator, and then open the Gallery (2014).
