Congrats to Tie Jojima for making the New York Times Best Art Books of 2022!

Ph.D. candidate Tie Jojima co-curated (with Rachel Remick and Aimé Iglesias Lukin) an exhibition of Mexican sculptor, Geles Cabrera. Geles Cabrera: Museo Escultórico was on view at the Americas Society this summer. An accompanying book of the same title was co-edited by Jojima.  She authored an essay on the interrelation between dance, affect, and Mexico city in Cabrera’s sculptural practice and wrote the artist’s chronology.  The New York Times has just recognized this book as one of the Best Art Books of 2022!
