Emma Laube



As a doctoral student in Art History, Theory and Criticism, Emma Laube specializes in modern Chinese art. She holds a BA in Art History and East Asian studies from Oberlin College and an MA in History of Art from The Ohio State University, where her thesis considered the mobilization of jade objects for exposition display in China’s early-twentieth-century interwar years.

Emma’s curatorial work developed out of study abroad at the China Academy of Art, which was supported by the Chinese Ministry of Education, and through her previous role in academic outreach at the Allen Memorial Art Museum. There, she organized two exhibitions, Zao Wou-Ki: Prints in Context (2019) and Boredom Aesthetics: The Early Videos of Zhang Peili (2020).
