Curatorial Studies

By the end of my time at Moore I began envisioning the future of my work existing at the intersection of curatorial and archival practices. (I would say I saw the politics of representation that we were really engaging with in an art historical sense in the curatorial department mirrored in the structures of the archives-something very much inspired by my time at SALT.) 

I felt the foundation that I gained at Moore, particularly in critical theory and exhibition history, could be pushed into a more interdisciplinary realm, so in my senior year, I applied and was accepted to Simmons College in Boston, MA, where I am currently working on masters degrees in Archives Management and History.

I used the summer in between graduation and graduate school to continue learning through internship, this time at the Smithsonian Institution's Center For Folklife and Culture Heritage, where I focused predominantly on the archival processing and preservation of  art and design work in the Moses and Frances Asch Collection.

Since moving to Boston, I have also interned in the Project SAVE Armenian Photograph Archives in Watertown, processing and digitizing studio portraiture, primarily from the early diaspora.
