As a Ph.D. candidate in Art History at the CUNY Graduate Center, Abigail Lapin Dardashti specializes in Postwar Latin American and African Diasporic art. Her dissertation, entitled “Politics, Religion, and Modernity in Transnational Afro-Brazilian Art, 1961-1988,” explores the central role of the visual arts in redefining Brazilian blackness through exchange with West Africa and the United States. Her work has been funded by Fulbright, the Social Science Research Council, the Mellon Foundation, the Smithsonian Institution, and the CUNY Graduate Center. She has published in peer-reviewed journals such as Public Art Dialogue and Diálogo, and has served as a Curatorial Fellow at the Studio Museum in Harlem and at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
