About: Francesca Albrezzi

I’m the research assistant to Murtha Baca, head of Digital Art History at the Getty Research Institute. Within the Digital Mellini project, I’ve served as a project manager, data integrator, and art historical researcher. I’m continuing to collaborate and assist in the production of the Scholars’ Workspace and its individual projects. As a PhD student in the department of World Arts and Cultures at UCLA, my work involves looking at technology as it shapes culture today, particularly in the discipline and practice of art history, through the lens of Culture and Performance Studies, as well as through other various theoretical frameworks.
