Lisa Aronson teaches and writes mainly about African art and visual culture. Initially, her scholarship focused on African textiles and trade and on issues of gender in African art. More recently, her interests have turned to contemporary African art and African photography. Her work on the early Nigerian photographer, Jonathan Adagogo Green, that was funded through a Getty Collaborative Research Grant, will lead to a jointly authored book on the subject. Currently, she is co-curating an exhibition of contemporary African art with the Tang Museum Director, John Weber. Titled Environment and Object in Recent African Art, the show is due to open at the Tang in February 2011. Besides African, Aronson teaches courses in Native American and Meso and South American art.
