About: Nancy Perloff

I’m associate curator of modern and contemporary collections at the Getty Research Institute. My scholarship addresses the Russian avant-garde, European modernism, and the relationship between music and the visual arts. I’m at work right now on a book publication, provisionally titled Books to Look at, Books to Listen to: The Great Russsian Avant-Garde Experiment, which builds upon the exhibition I curated at the GRI on Russian Futurist books.
