Dr. Katie Geha is a writer, curator, and art historian. She is Director of the Galleries a the Lamar Dodd School of Art and regularly teaches modern and contemporary art history seminars on artists’ writing. She received her PhD from the University of Texas, Austin and her MA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Geha's research is focused on American art from the 1960s to the present. She examines technology, science, mysticism, gender, and poetics as principles within the art of this period. Most recently, her work has focused on expanding notions of conceptual art by reintroducing and emphasizing systems as forms of representation within the art of 1960s and 1970s. In "Like Life: Data, Process, Change 1967-1976," Geha studies the work of artists Lee Lozano, Vija Celmins, and Beryl Korot and argues that these underrepresented female artists used new technologies to develop relationships between mediums and the ordinary—elements of daily experience that form more of a chronicle than a narrative.

Geha was formally the Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Ulrich Museum of Art and her writing has appeared in numerous publications including the Poetry Foundation, Artforum.com, Glasstire.com, and The Huffington Post.
