I’m Dr. Erin Schwartz, and I am an Art Historian currently living and working in Wenzhou, China. In addition to teaching a variety of classes at all levels at Wenzhou Kean University, I serve as the Coordinator of the Art History program. I’ve spearheaded the implementation of the new Art History minor at WKU.
As an Art Historian I specialize in Contemporary Arts, specifically from Africa and the African diaspora. But my research and personal interests span multiple cultures. At the core, I am interested in the experience of art, the expansion of art, and how we, as human beings communicate and connect through this uniquely human activity.
A project I’m working on currently with a research group at my university involves the use of virtual reality (VR) in art history education.
In addition to teaching, I also have provided writing and consultation services to artists helping them refine and articulate their aesthetic vision. This website is a way for me to connect with others who share similar professional interests and may wish to collaborate or contact me for consultation.
