I'm currently supervising the processing and cataloging of the recently acquired Robert Mapplethorpe Photographs and Papers, and am cataloging the Harry Lunn Papers. I co-curated the GRI exhibition Obsidian Mirror-Travels: Refracting Ancient Mexican Art and Archaeology, and have recently curated an exhibition at the Los Angeles Public Library, A Nation Emerges: the Mexican Revolution Revealed.
