Mark Rospenda, Curator of Exhibitions and Collections is the host.

Rebecca DiGiovanna is an independent curator, historian, and artist from Memphis, TN. She is pursuing an MA in Art History at Hunter College; her art historical investigations center on the politics of identity and themes of migrancy and diaspora; constructions of gender and Otherness; and modes of collecting and preservation.
