Areas of Expertise
My teaching engages various art movements after 1960, including pop,performance, and conceptual art, and the continuing influence and impact of such movements on contemporary art today. In the classroom, I encourage interdisciplinary study, historical research, formal and theoretical analysis, and cross-cultural inquiry.
Selected areas of expertise include: Latina/o visual culture, art of California, film theory and independent media, queer theory, and the history of music video. In general, my research investigates the interactions between art, social space, and the urban environment, and the relations between racial formation and racial signification in the visual arts.
