Angela H. Brown is a Ph.D. student studying modern and contemporary art. Her research interests include: the interplay of text, image, and voice in ephemeral artworks and popular media; the diagramming of industrial processes in relation to Indigenous and handmade construction in Puerto Rico and Mexico; and the queer cartographies that emerge (or remain furtive) as art, artists, and pedagogies circulate between Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean, especially in the early 20th century.
Brown received her B.A. in art history from Vassar College, with a minor in French. Before joining the Department of Art and Archaeology, she worked as a writer and editor for art galleries, magazines, and independent publishers in New York, and continues to work with contemporary artists on research and text-based projects. In Spring/Fall 2020, Brown participated in MoMA’s Mellon-Marron Research Consortium.
