Catalina Ospina


Catalina is a doctoral student of pre-Columbian and Colonial Latin American art history. Her research explores the multivalence of colonial aesthetics and the ways in which the pre-Columbian tradition was condensed and transformed in colonial art. Catalina wrote her MA thesis on the works of Doris Salcedo from the 1990s, investigating the ways in which their materiality was connected with the socio-political context of Colombia. She received an MA from the University of Chicago and a BS from Universidad de los Andes.
