Personal profile

Personal information

Angela Bartholomew is a doctoral candidate in art history with support from the Dutch Organization for Scientific Research (NWO).


General research interests include the factors that shape the production and presentation of art. Particular interests involve the production of art in the 1980s and 1990s.

Her PhD research examines exhibitions and how they shape artistic practice, and in turn how artistic practice shapes exhibition making. It looks specifically at pivotal exhibitions that occurred in the Netherlands and Flanders in the mid-1980s to mid-1990s. The manner in which curators shape the presentation, and the production of art, as well as the various strategies that artists adopt to influence the appearance, distribution, and reception of their work are of key interest.
