Malbrán has held curatorial positions in several art institutions. She was Hilla Rebay International Fellow at the Guggenheim Museums, working in contemporary and modern exhibitions across the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum, Bilbao; and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice (2007–2008). She has also worked at the Pinacoteca do Estado, São Paulo (2006), and the Museum of Modern Art, Buenos Aires (2004–2005). Additionally, she has undertaken curatorial residencies in Switzerland (2011) and Spain (2009).
She teaches Modern and Contemporary Latin American Art at New York University (Academic Center in Buenos Aires).
Malbrán received an M.A. in Curatorial Studies from the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, New York, where she was a Bruce T. Halle Family Foundation Fellow. She is currently completing a doctorate in Arts and Humanities at Rosario National University, Argentina, and is a PhD Fellow at the National Council of Scientific Research (Conicet). Her dissertation rejects the idea of medium specificity and explores intersections among literature, contemporary art and critical theory from 1990–2010, focusing on the intertwining histories of the verbal and the visual.
Recent catalog writing includes essays on Ernesto Neto for the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, and Ragnar Kjartansson for the Icelandic Pavilion at the 53th Venice Biennale.
