As a scholar of American art of the 20th and 21st centuries, I am passionate about contemporary art and visual culture, with a focus on sculpture, mixed media, and performance.
My professional experience includes training by the Center for Curatorial Leadership, where I was a participant in the 2018 CCL/Mellon Foundation Seminar in Curatorial Practice. I have held positions in cultural institutions throughout the United States, including the Center for the Slavery and Justice at Brown University; the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture; the Megan Fox Kelly Art Advisory; the Atlanta History Center; and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Currently, I am the Curatorial Assistant at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, as well as a 2019-2020 Tyson Scholar of American Art at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. I am completing a PhD in American Studies at Brown University, where I am also a MA candidate in the Department of the History of Art and Architecture. My dissertation, “Seeing Feeling: The Work of Empathy in Exhibitionary Spaces,” considers how contemporary art museums and other exhibitionary spaces reinforce racial sightlines through the rhetoric of empathetic sight.
