Art Historian

Pandora is a guest lecture for the Curating Contemporary Art elective (part of MA Contemporary Art).

Pandora is an art historian currently producing her first monograph, Jewels of the Natural History Museum: Gender, Display and the Nonhuman, 1851-1901. From 2016-2017 she was postdoctoral fellow at the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, where she developed this research stemming from her PhD in the History of Art, UCL (2015). Pandora has published book chapters on the Blaschka glass models of marine invertebrates, censorship of the nude in Interwar Canadian painting and the influence of the Victorian supernatural on contemporary art, and has written for various journals and magazines on contemporary art and curation. She has presented her research internationally and has taught on modern and contemporary art and exhibition practices at Sotheby’s Institute of Art, UCL and York University, Toronto.
