Monica Bravo specializes in the modern art of the Americas and the history of photography. Her dissertation and current book project examines exchanges between U.S. modernist photographers and modern Mexican artists working in painting, poetry, music, and photography, resulting in the development of a Greater American modernism in the interwar period. Her research has been supported by fellowships from the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts (CASVA), the Center for Creative Photography, the Georgia O'Keeffe Research Center, and the Huntington Library and Art Collections.
Monica will present a paper on October 8th at the Association of Historians of American Art Fourth Biennial Symposium.
