Independent curator and scholar. Passionate about twentieth-century printmaking and women artists.
Christina Weyl is a New York-based curator and art historian with expertise on twentieth-century American printmaking and women artists. She is available for freelance projects that advance understanding of these topics, including commissioned research and writing, exhibition development and curation, lectures and public programming, and anything in between.
Her book, The Women of Atelier 17: Modernist Printmaking in Midcentury New York (Yale University Press, 2019), which grew from her dissertation, highlights the nearly 100 women artists who advanced modernism and feminism at Atelier 17, the avant-garde printmaking studio located in New York City between 1940 and 1955.
She has organized numerous exhibitions for institutions such as the Print Center New York, Art Students League, Pollock Krasner House, and Arcadia University. She has published in Art in Print, Print Quarterly, Archives of American Art Journal, and Panorama and contributed to several anthologies and exhibition catalogues.
From 2014-2018, she served as Co-President of the Association of Print Scholars, a non-profit professional organization she co-founded in 2014. Prior to her graduate studies, she worked for IFPDA member Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl, which represents the publications of the Los Angeles–based artists’ workshop Gemini G.E.L. She received her BA from Georgetown University (2005) and completed her MA and PhD in art history at Rutgers University (2012, 2015).
