Lisa Aronson specializes in 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 Johathan Adagogo Green, funded through a Getty Collaborative Research Grant, led to a jointly authored book on the subject that is forthcoming from Indiana University Press. She also co-curated an exhibition of contemporary African art with former Tang Museum director John Weber.
