Patricia Eunji Kim, PhD (she/her) is an art historian, curator, and educator based in New York City. She is Assistant Professor at New York University and Senior Editor and Curator-at-Large at Monument Lab.
Dr. Kim engages with art-historical and archaeological methods to explore questions of gender, race, power, and memory in antiquity and the present. Her current monograph project is the first book-length study on the visual and material culture of Hellenistic queenship from the fourth to second centuries B.C.E.—a corpus of materials central to a show that she is guest-curating at the Cincinnati Art Museum. Dr. Kim also brings her perspectives as an art historian of the ancient eastern Mediterranean and western Asia to bear on the most pressing social, cultural, and political issues that we face today. Among others, she has written about and curated exhibitions on environmental temporalities, feminist ecologies, and transnational memory cultures. Recent publications include Timescales: Thinking Across Ecological Temporalities (2020) and The National Monument Audit (2021).
