Molleen Theodore is the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Fellow in the Education Department at the Yale University Art Gallery, a critic at the Yale School of Art, and a lecturer in the Education Department at the Museum of Modern Art. She received her PhD from the CUNY Graduate Center in 2010 with a specialization in twentieth-century art, photography, and film studies. Her dissertation, "Beyond 'Meaningless Work': The Art of Walter De Maria, 1960-1977," is a foundational study of the breadth and complexity of De Maria's production, the variety of its reception, and his relationship to history, institutions, collectors, and patrons. . She is currently supervising a student-curated exhibition of works from the Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection: Fifty Works for Fifty States.
