Rosario Güiraldes is Curator of Visual Arts at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.

She most recently held the position of Associate Curator at The Drawing Center, where she worked between 2017 and 2023. Among her recent projects are monographic exhibitions of the work of Xiyadie (2023), Fernanda Laguna (2022), Ebecho Muslimova (2021), and Guo Fengyi (2020), as well as the expansive drawing survey Drawing in the Continuous Present (2022).
