Michele Greet

Visiting Scholar

Michele Greet is associate professor of art history at George Mason University. She received her Ph.D. in modern Latin American art from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University in 2004. Her book, Beyond National Identity: Pictorial Indigenism as a Modernist Strategy in Andean Art, 1920-1960, came out with Penn State University Press's Refiguring Modernism Series in 2009, and was funded by a Getty Foundation publication grant. In 2008-2009 she received a research fellowship from The Phillips Collection in Washington, DC, to begin work on a new book on Latin American artists in Paris between the two world wars. She spent the summer in Paris--funded by a George Mason University Creative Award--where she conducted extensive archival research for this project. She has lectured on Mexican muralism, Latin American women artists, the Ecuadorian vanguard, colonial Peruvian art, and Latin American artists in Paris.

This lecture is co-sponsored by the Visiting Artists and Scholars Committee and the Department of American Studies at George Washington University.
