Katie Larson is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the History of Art Department at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore, Maryland. In December 2017, she received her PhD from Johns Hopkins University. Her dissertation, Alberto Burri in Rome, 1946-1960, examined the genesis and proliferation of multimedia artistic strategies in Europe during the postwar period, using Burri as a case study. Her research was supported by a Chuck Close Pre-Doctoral Rome Prize in Modern Italian Studies from the American Academy in Rome, and a PhD Scholarship from the Gerda Henkel Stiftung. Larson also held curatorial fellowships at the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Walters Art Museum while

in graduate school. As new faculty at MICA, she looks forward to the opportunity to teach emerging artists and to curate shows in the greater Baltimore-Washington region.
