Sila Ulug

Biography

Sila is a PhD student in the Department of Art History and the Committee on Theater and Performance Studies. She is currently investigating the relationship of Enlightenment-era thematics to the performance of contemporary (conceptual) art as it is informed by the conservatorial protocols of protection; preservation; and restoration. Her parallel interests include the history and theory of intentionality; social contracts; and foolery, especially as they intersect with the art institutional reception of the working classes.
