Kelly-Christina Grant is currently completing a PhD in art history at Université Paris-Nanterre under the direction of Judith Delfiner and Jacqueline Francis, who teaches at the California College of the Arts. A young art history researcher, she has expanded her multidisciplinary background with experience in the contemporary art market through working at the Mariane Ibrahim International Gallery. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach that combines art history, African American studies, cultural and visual studies, and gender studies, her thesis examines the transnational experience of Loïs Mailou Jones (1905–1998) through her landscape painting practice. Her research and writings have received the support of AWARE and, most recently, the Terra Foundation for American Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
