Rebecca Elisabeta Marya Ribeiro

Rebecca Elisabeta Marya (Rem) Ribeiro,  recently graduated with my MA in Art History on the M+ track. I received my BA from Manhattanville College with a double major in Creative/Professional Writing, and Art History. She chose Purchase College’s  MA Art History program due to its intimate class size, emphasis on modern and contemporary art, and access to an established museum on campus. The M+ track gives graduate students the opportunity to curate an exhibition at the Neuberger. She is  interested in contemporary works by queer artists of color, more specifically those who navigate their medium in accordance with their own personal histories. Her hope is to continue her involvement in museums and museum education in the future, more specifically within the curatorial department. Rem strongly believes that art education is beneficial to everyone, and it is an integral part in intersectional understanding and the questioning of Western canons. As a practicing artist, art history helps her better inform her own art. She is a large-scale abstract artist who uses color and movement to transcribe music compositions and complex emotions into something tangible.
