Flavia Grilli

Flavia Grilli is a second-year graduate student concentrating on contemporary art and the global cultural economy. This topic originated during her undergraduate studies in Economics and International Relations in São Paulo, Brazil, providing a fascinating confluence between her multifaceted academic background and long-lasting passion for the arts. After receiving an award for her honors thesis on the economic value of art, Flavia left a career in economic research and derivative markets to study art history and became increasingly interested in curating. She has interned at art museums and galleries and is excited to participate in the GAF for the second time. She wishes Gallatin had a PhD program and dreams of coming back some day as a faculty member.
