MA in Historical and Cultural Visualization | Class of 2015
I am a first year MA student in the Historical and Cultural Visualization program. I received my BA in art history at Princeton University, where I took a variety of classes in different branches of art history. I wrote my senior thesis on the British-Nigerian contemporary artist Yinka Shonibare’s Fake Death Series. I compared and contrasted Shonibare’s photographs to the original paintings he used, while looking at the literal and metaphorical death that appear in both. During my summers I interned for Maya Lin, transcribing videos for her What is Missing Project? I also interned at the SOHO gallery, Deitch Projects, and at Daniel Wolf’s studio.
