Karen Lue

Currently a senior, Karen will graduate in April 2015 with double majors in History of Art & Architecture and Economics and a minor in French. Her long-term career goals include working as a curator or director of education or public programming in a museum, gallery, or another arts institution. She has had experience as an undergraduate teaching assistant for three semesters and a research assistant in the Visual Media Workshop. In Summer 2014, she was awarded the Milton Fine Museum Profession Fellowship to work as a curatorial assistant at the Andy Warhol Museum. She currently holds a position as gallery manager at Revision Space, a contemporary art gallery in Lawrenceville. Karen will present her HA&A honors thesis project on the Chinese Nationality Room and its historical context, focused on the transnational and cross-cultural issues concerning Chinese immigrants during the 1920s and ‘30s. Her thesis will produce an online exhibition featuring objects from the Chinese Nationality Room archives, newspapers contemporary to the time period of the Room’s creation, and present day photographs of the Room. This project is an exploration in both research and curatorial practice combined with her interest in Chinese immigrant and Chinese-American issues of identity and nationality.

Karen's presentation at HAAARCH 2015 is entitled "The Politics of Display: Transnational Convergence in the Chinese Nationality Room."
