    Recent Art History Publications by Dr. Olivia Wolf

    Dr. Olivia Wolf, Assistant Professor in Art History, has published several new peer-reviewed texts over the 2022-23 academic year, engaging with both her primary and secondary areas of research in Latin American and Middle Eastern art, respectively.

    Most recently, her article, "Transnational traces in the Espigas repository: Bibí Zogbé's artistic production and early critical reception at the Galerías Witcomb (1934-1937)" was published as part of the bilingual Spanish-English Cuadernos series by the Centro de Estudios Espigas / Centro de Investigaciones en Arte y Patrimonio (CONICET-UNSAM). In this article, Wolf examines the creative production and critical framing of Arab-Argentine artist Bibí Zogbé via a series of exhibition catalogs published by the Buenos Aires-based Witcomb Gallery in the 1930s and 40s.
