Interviewing artist Ursula von Rydingsvard for the Storm King Oral History Program

 

About

I conduct one on one interviews to document life and career experiences, bringing relevant social and historical research into my questions. I also advise on the shape and scope of interview-based collections, including the ethical, technical, and practical requirements necessary for oral historical projects. 

Whether the audience is museum-goers, documentary filmmakers, family members, radio producers, writers, or researchers at local historical societies or university archives, I ensure that interviews and interview-based collections will serve as a valuable resource that resonates far into the future.

My work has focused on topics including visual arts and artists' legacies, gender and sexuality, memorials and monuments, the built and natural landscape, healers, historic preservation and NYC neighborhoods, AIDS activism, and international philanthropy

I have led workshops and discussions at Columbia University, Princeton University, the Félix González-Torres Foundation, the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, and the 9/11 Memorial, among others. My writing has appeared in the Oral History Review, Public Historian, and the Brooklyn Rail. I am co-founder of In Context Journal, and a member of the Oral History Association. I am based in New York City.
