  • Bio

    Andrea Nitsche-Krupp is a Ph.D. candidate at the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University specializing in modern and contemporary art. Her primary fields of interest and research are the history and theory of sculpture; postwar sculpture and installation art; the role of materiality and duration in objectified activity; and the application of concerns and methodologies of 'technical' art history and conservation to art historical practice. Her ongoing dissertation examines the first five years of Matthew Barney's artistic production and its engagement with the history of postwar art practice, specifically the activity of so-called Postminimal and Process art of the late 1960s.
