Anna Moszynska

Consultant Lecturer, London

MA, Courtauld Institute; BA (Hons) University College London

Anna Moszynska pioneered the study of contemporary art at Sotheby's Institute during the late 1980s, and oversaw the development of the MA in Contemporary Art. In addition to writing books she has contributed to journals including Tate, Apollo, Arts Review, TLS, and Art Monthly, as well as writing for and lecturing at international institutions. Her research interests include the development of recent British, European, American, and Middle Eastern practice, and the problematic issue of medium specificity. In 2010, she curated an exhibition of Antony Gormley's drawings and sculpture for the reopening of MACRO (Museum of Contemporary Art) in Rome. Moszynska is an art critic for BBC Radio 3 and a member of the International Art Critics Association.
