Chloë Courtney is a first-year PhD student at New York University’s Institute of Fine Arts. She earned her MA in art history at the University of New Mexico in 2018, where her research focused on contemporary artists contending with Mexico City’s fraught ecological history. Past curatorial projects have emphasized the intertwined relationships between neoliberal power structures, social understandings of nature, and ecological degradation. Last year, she was the 2019-2020 McDermott Curatorial Intern for Contemporary Art at the Dallas Museum of Art. Courtney’s current research continues her focus on modern and contemporary art of the Americas, with a particular interest in craft and fiber in both art and visual culture.
