Camila Maroja works on modern and contemporary art and visual culture, with an emphasis on Latin America and transnational exchanges. Born and raised in Rio, she was trained in Brazil where she received a MA from PUC-Rio (Brazil) before completing a PhD from Duke University (US). Her research focuses upon exhibition histories, cultural hemispherical interchanges, the ways in which artists negotiate and localize their production in a globalized world, decolonial methodologies, and situated avant-gardes. At California State University, Fullerton, she teaches Latin American and Chicanx visual culture as well as contemporary art and exhibition design and curation.
Prior to coming to Cal State Fullerton, she held tenure-track positions at McGill University and Colgate University, where she was the Kindler Distinguished Historian of Global Contemporary Art. She was also a Postdoctoral Scholar in Residence at the Getty Research Institute and a Postdoctoral Fellow in International Humanities at Brown University.
