Thanks to Nathan Townes-Anderson for his copious posting and excerpts from all walks of art history. Follow him back on his own site, Nathantown.

Up next is Kelly Huang. Kelly recently completed her master’s in Arts Administration and Policy from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her thesis explored the art world ecosystems of New York and Chicago, and how those structures affect the valuation of artworks and artists. Huang is especially interested in issues of valuation, the global art market, and the relationships between for-profit and non-profit arts organizations. Before returning for her master’s degree, Huang worked as a photo editor for The Atlantic magazine in Washington, DC. There, she participated as a member of the fine arts editorial panel, which led to her overseeing an essay and slideshow on Chinese Contemporary Art by Britta Erickson. Huang has held positions at Carrie Secrist Gallery, the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Gallery 400, and The Renaissance Society. During her time as Visiting Gallery Manager at Gallery 400, Huang co-curated This Shadow is a Bit of Ideology. As a curatorial assistant at The Renaissance Society, Huang assisted on Several Silences and the accompanying catalog. Huang has recently relocated to the SF Bay Area, where she is currently working on independent curatorial and writing projects.
