K. L. H. Wells
Wells earned a B.A. from Barnard College and an M.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, both in art history. She has contributed research to curatorial projects at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the Milwaukee Art Museum, and most recently to the Pacific Standard Time exhibition at the Getty Center. As the recipient of a Swiss National Science Foundation Research Fellowship, Wells gave guest lectures at the Kunsthistorisches Institüt of the University of Zurich and the Bard Graduate Center in New York City. Her publications include “Serpentine Sideboards, Hogarth’s Analysis, and the Beautiful Self” in Eighteenth Century Studies (Spring 2013) and “Curating the Cultural Landscape: Chipstone House as Historical Property” in The International Journal of the Inclusive Museum (2009). In her dissertation, Modernism’s Other Tableau: Tapestry in the Twentieth Century, Wells explores both the historical and discursive connections between tapestry and modernist art, recovering the visibility of tapestry in the twentieth century in order to challenge dominant narratives of modernism.
