There, she curated Roots of “The Dinner Party”: History in the Making and co-organized Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty (2016–17). She is currently coordinating Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960-1985 (April 13 – July 22 2018) as well as a collection exhibition (opening summer 2018); she serves on both the Council for Feminist Art and the Young Leadership Council. Previously, she was Assistant Curator for Collections at the Solomon R.

In addition to collections research and projects, she co-curated the contemporary collection exhibitions Now’s the Time: Recent Acquisitions (2012–13) and Storylines: Contemporary Art at the Guggenheim (2015).
