Adjunct Assistant Professor
Christina Weyl received her BA from Georgetown University (2005) and completed her masters and doctorate in Art History at Rutgers University (2012, 2015). Her current book project (forthcoming, spring 2019) follows eight women, who worked at the avant-garde printmaking workshop Atelier 17 in New York between 1940 and 1955. These trailblazing artists made modernist prints that defied gender norms, and they struggled to convince skeptical critics that their works were serious artistic innovations rather than mere craft. In 2016, she curated an exhibition for the Pollock-Krasner House & Study Center around the same subject.
Weyl’s research interests also include midcentury color printmaking, WPA graphic arts workshops, Americans living abroad in interwar Paris, and proto-feminist activity in the 1940s and 1950s. She has spoken at many conferences, published essays in Art in Print and Print Quarterly, and contributed to several anthologies and exhibition catalogues.
She also serves as Co-President of the Association of Print Scholars, a non-profit professional organization she co-founded in 2014. Her research has been supported by the Metropolitan Museum, the Mellon Foundation, and other institutional grants. Prior to her graduate studies, she worked for a gallery representing the publications of the Los Angeles–based artists’ workshop Gemini G.E.L.
