Regina Harsanyi

Regina is a 2015-2017 MA candidate at the Institute of Fine Arts. Her current primary focus is on the history of moving image in the gallery before 1965. Regina also focuses on the relationship between the museum and archive, technical art history, and film preservation. Working for years as a registrar at Sotheby’s sparked her interest in materials science and preservation, as well as the history of fine art databases and cataloguing languages. Previous internships include the Post-War and Contemporary department at Christie’s and Pace/MacGill Gallery. Most recently, Regina was a core member of the Artist Archive Project, helping to build the David Wojnarowicz Knowledge Base with generous funds from the Polonsky Digital Humanities Program.


In the 2016 -2017 season of the NYU Curatorial Collaborative, Harsanyi organized the exhibition When A Digital Surface Meets A Mutable Apparatus… featuring the work of artists Daniel Mock and Dylan Riley.
