Pietroiusti was the founder of the General Ecology project and network, and a co-founder of Serpentine Radio. Outside Serpentine, she is the curator of

ruangrupa is a collective founded in 2000 in Jakarta, Indonesia. The collective runs an art space in South Jakarta and realizes exhibitions, festivals, publications and radio formats. The Indonesian word ruangrupa loosely translates as “a space for art” or “a space form”. This field of tension is already apparent from the collective’s central curatorial approach.
ruangrupa has participated in many cooperation and exhibition projects, including the Gwangju Biennale (2002 and 2018), the Istanbul Biennale (2005), the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (Brisbane, 2012), the Singapore Biennale (2011), the São Paulo Biennale (2014), the Aichi Triennale (Nagoya, 2016) and Cosmopolis at Centre Pompidou (Paris, 2017). In 2016, ruangrupa curated TRANSaction: Sonsbeek 2016 in Arnhem, the Netherlands. In 2018, the participants founded GUDSKUL, an educational and networking project for creatives based on cooperative work.
