Gabrielle Gopinath is a historian of modern and contemporary art, focusing primarily on multimedia and screen art produced from the 1960s on. She received her Ph.D and Masters degrees in the History of Art from Yale University. She also holds a MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. She is interested in how images interface in contemporary screen culture, particularly the ways in which social and political meaning is inflected by the unique properties of the digital image. Her current book project interprets and historicizes images situated between movement and stasis in contemporary screen art and popular culture, assessing their kinship with earlier forms of "undead" image in film and protocinematic technologies. Her writing has appeared in the Quarterly Review of Film and Video, The Soundtrack, Oxford Art Journal, and the Yale University Art Gallery Bulletin.
At SAIC, Gopinath teaches art history courses on a range of topics in modern and contemporary art, from surveys of modern and postmodern art theory to graduate seminars on photography and video art.
