Jacqueline Miro was born in San Salvador, El Salvador. After attending Middlesex Boarding School -- with Swell co-curator and Nyehaus owner Tim Nye -- she studied architecture at Tulane University in New Orleans, La., where she obtained a Masters in architecture. She moved back to El Salvador and worked for the ministry of public works.
In 1995, Miro moved to Paris where she got her Masters in urban policies at the Ecole Nationale des Ponds et Chaussees and joined Association Peripheriques.
Upon returning to New York, she completed the Whitney Independent Studies Program and opened her design and architecture firm. Amongst her clients are a variety of restaurants, galleries and residences.
Jacqueline and friend Daniela Fabricius started and continue to host the popular lecture series "Engaging the City," which focuses on urban issues around the world. Guests speakers have included Antony Vidler, Manuel de Landa, Vito Acconci, and many others.
She joined Avroko in 2004, and has now joined forces with friend Tim Nye in recreating a brand for Nyehaus, editing books and catalogues, and most importantly, curating larger shows.
Jacqueline has a daughter, Clara, with Miguel Abreu, owner of Miguel Abreu Gallery.
