Marguerite Hoffman Scholar in Residence, 2014-17
Anna Lovatt received her Ph.D. from the Courtauld Institute of Art, London and was subsequently a Henry Moore Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at the Courtauld. She was a lecturer in art history at the University of Nottingham, UK from 2007 to 2012 and at the University of Manchester, UK from 2012 to 2014. Lovatt’s research focuses on the art of the 1960s and 70s and its legacies, particularly drawing in the context of post-minimal and conceptual art. Her writing in this area has appeared in Afterall, Artforum, Art History, October, Oxford Art Journal, Tate Papers and Word and Image. In 2013 she curated the exhibition Michelle Stuart: Drawn from Nature, which traveled from the University of Nottingham to the Parrish Art Museum, New York and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Calif.; an edited volume published by Hatje Cantz accompanied the exhibition. Lovatt is working on a monograph, provisionally entitled Drawing Degree Zero: The Line from Minimal to Conceptual Art.
