FORA.tv Speaker - Jennifer Tonkovich
Jennifer Tonkovich is an art historian and curator at the Morgan Library & Museum, New York. During the past thirteen years, she has organized and collaborated on more than twenty-five exhibitions, contributed to numerous catalogues, and published articles, essays, and conference papers on subjects ranging from old master drawings to the history of collecting. She has a lively interest in cultural patrimony, heritage preservation, the role of nationalism in the conservation of historical sites, and the concept of the “museum” in the developing world. She has explored such subjects in her recent travels to Libya, Burma, Ethiopia, Uzbekistan, and Guatemala, among other places. Her research interests also include comparative architecture and architectural decoration, and the manifestation of the human impulse for mark making—from cave paintings to graffiti.
