Your Background

Your Biography

Originally trained as a conservator, I am particularly inspired by the preservation challenges presented by contemporary art, including electronic installations. I am most interested in the philosophical issues that often surround its legacy and long-term care, in the requisite collaborations between artists, curators, technical experts, registrars, and conservators, and how collecting and preserving contemporary art calls into question some of the fundamental assumptions underlying traditional stewardship in museums.
