Emily Friedman is a PhD candidate in the history of art at Johns Hopkins University, where she studies northern European art of the early modern period. Her dissertation, “Transformations: Art, Enigma and Intellectual Culture in Lyon, 1500-1550”, positions artist-engravers in Lyon within the intellectual environment of their city, where an interest in alchemy and enigma shaped an ambitious and reflexive artistic practice that was expressed in the very works they produced. Her research has been supported by the Charles Singleton Center for the Study of Premodern Europe and she is the recipient of a two-year Samuel H. Kress Institutional Fellowship (2020-2022). Emily received her BA in art history and English literature from McGill University, has held curatorial internships at the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts and the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, and served as the assistant editor for 032c Magazine, a contemporary culture magazine published in Berlin. She is the current Carlson/Cowart Fellow in the Department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the Baltimore Museum of Art.
