Gabriella Shypula is an independent curator, art historian, and writer based in New York. A PhD Candidate in Art History and Criticism at Stony Brook University, her research examines the relationship between lived experience and art practice, studying women artists whose art features autobiography from the 1970s to present. Her dissertation seeks to recover autobiography as a historical mode, centering women’s artmaking in New York City from 1972 to 1988. Gabriella has collaborated on curatorial and research projects at the Baltimore Museum of Art, MoMA, the Willem de Kooning Foundation, and A.I.R. Gallery. She has contributed to exhibitions including “Joan Mitchell” (Baltimore Museum of Art, SFMOMA 2021-2022) and “Judson Dance Theater: The Work Is Never Done” (MoMA, 2018-2019).
