Join me in welcoming Emily Liebert, our next guest blogger. At the moment, Emily is getting her PhD in art history at Columbia where she studies American art of the 60s and 70s as well as contemporary African art. She has worked at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, TX, Creative Time, The Andy Warhol Foundation and MoMA. Recently she has given lectures on the Center for Land Use Interpretation at MoMA’s graduate symposium and on contemporary uses of photography in Ghanaian funerals at the Triennial of African Art. In addition to her academic research, Emily has worked as a recipe researcher and tester for cookbooks and has spent some time on a stage as a comedienne. Food and comic timing, who could ask for anything more?
Many thanks to Amy Mackie for her contributions, especially her post Socially Acceptable. Keep a look out for Amy’s next projects at the New Museum, she is currently working on a special commissioned project with multi-media artist Jeremy Deller that will culminate in the construction of a mobile Iraqi War museum.
