The online magazine of the GettyA world of art, research, conservation, and philanthropy
About: Sofía Sanabrais and Meha Priyadarshini
I am a current Getty Scholar and a Los Angeles-based art historian and curator who focuses on the cultural and artistic exchanges between Latin America and Asia from the colonial period to the present day. I am a lover of nature in all its various forms. I will be spending my spring and summer raising caterpillars, waiting for them to turn into chrysalises and then joyfully releasing them into the wild. I may even take a stab at adding praying mantises and carnivorous plants to my menagerie.
I am a fellow at the Getty Research Institute in 2013–14 and just finished my PhD at the Department of History at Columbia University, New York.
