My research and teaching focus on interwar avant-garde and modern art movements, particularly in and between France and the United States, and the persistence of these practices after World War II. My background in the study of fashion and dress has allowed me to bring to my work a unique set of tools and points of reference to elucidate relationships between art and everyday life throughout the twentieth century. I am currently at work on a book manuscript titled,Surrealism and the Art of Consumption.
