Ileana-Lucia  Selejan


I am a Decolonising Arts Institute Research Fellow and an Associate Lecturer on BA Culture, Criticism and Curation at Central Saint Martins and a Research Associate in the Department of Anthropology at University College London, where I am a part of the European Research Council (ERC) funded project, Citizens of Photography: The Camera and the Political Imagination. I was previously the Linda Wyatt Gruber ’66 Curatorial Fellow in Photography at The Davis Museum at Wellesley College where I curated the exhibition Charlotte Brooks at LOOK: 1951-1971.

I received my PhD in Art History from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, and was granted the 2012–13 Joan and Stanford Alexander Award from the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, for my research in Nicaragua. As an adjunct instructor, I taught in the Photography and Imaging Department at Tisch School of the Arts, and in the Art History Department at New York University, at the Parsons School of Design in New York, and in the Fine Arts Department at West University, Timisoara, Romania.

Parallel to my research and academic work, I also write independently, and am a contributing member of the experimental arts collective kinema ikon.
