RESEARCH

2017      MA Thesis: “Images of Illustration: Practices between Craft and Anthropology”

University of California, Davis, Faculty Advisor: Marisol de la Cadena, Ph.D.

Re-valuing illustration as an evocative, a-literal practice between text/ image is a way to address anthropology’s methodological concerns over the careful representation of its informants and their life-worlds.

2014      MA Thesis: “The Problem of Curating History with Paintings that Taste like the Present: An Analysis of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Exhibition ‘Art and Appetite, American Painting, Culture, and Cuisine’”

University of Chicago, Faculty Advisor: Judith Farquhar, Ph.D.

Exploring how materials and forms together elicit affects that viscerally impact present-day viewers, this paper complicates conventional understandings of the relation between art practice, art objects, & history.
