WHILE AT WAM:
I created a proposal for the potential reinstallation of the permanent collection, revised labels for Fight or Buy Bonds and Many Visions, Many Versions: Art from Indigenous Communities in India, and prepared an exhibition checklist for the upcoming B.J.O. Nordfeldt exhibition. I wrote two “Focus on the Collection” articles featuring Postcommodity’s Repellent Fence (2015) and Stuyvesant Van Veen’s Hannah (Mood) (1930-32), and a feature article Vanishing Ice, for the newsletter. I also led a tour guide training
WHERE ARE YOU NOW:
I was recently appointed Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Milwaukee Art Museum, where my first major project will be a traveling exhibition of posters by French artist Jules Chéret. I am also finishing my doctoral dissertation in the Department of Art History at the University of Minnesota. My project, Alien Microbes: The Telescope, the Microscope, and Symbolist Artistic Vision in Nineteenth-Century France examines works created by Odilon Redon, Loie Fuller, and Edvard Munch between 1888 and 1910 to address how Symbolist artists used imagery from the microscope and the telescope to assert the legitimacy of artistic vision as a tool capable of revealing the invisible.
