Angela Brown



Angela H. Brown is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University, with research interests in textiles, archival practices, and art pedagogies, especially in the Caribbean and Latin America. Her dissertation, “Texture of the Weave: Techniques for Ch’ixi Modernity in the Americas,” takes a material approach to the co-constitution of modernity, coloniality, and indigeneity through weaving practices in Puerto Rico, Mexico City, and Oaxaca in the mid-twentieth century.

Brown holds a B.A. from Vassar College and has worked as a writer and editor for art galleries, magazines, and independent publishers in New York. Her writing has appeared in the Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy, e-flux architecture, and small axe salon, and her scholarship has been supported by the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA), the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Dedalus Foundation.
