Checa-Gismero

I am assistant professor of modern and contemporary art history at Swarthmore College.

Here is a selection of my academic publishing, catalog essays, art criticism, and translations.

In addition to writing and teaching, I have been involved in several editorial and curatorial projects.
 
My teaching revisits the history of Euro-American modernism from a transnational lens that foregrounds art's imbrication in the social fabric.
