Lesdi Carolina Goussen Robleto

Lesdi Carolina Goussen Robleto is a Ph.D. candidate in the History of Art Department at the University of California, Berkeley. She works on modern and contemporary art in Latin America and the Caribbean, with a focus on experimental, mixed-media, and performance practices in Central America. Her dissertation, (Un)mending Bodies: Patricia Belli and Feminist Artistic Praxis in Central America, 1986-2000s, looks at the work of the contemporary Nicaraguan artist, Patricia Belli, against the backdrop of postwar Nicaragua. Tending to fiber and craft-based materialities in the artist oeuvre, the dissertation considers how Belli’s work gives texture to counter-poetics of resistance that unravel national aesthetics and socio-political discourses. The project places Belli’s work in conversation with other Central American women artists that re-work everyday materials to find expression at the nexus of social and political transition.

In 2019, Lesdi helped organize About Things Loved: Blackness and Belonging at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA). Prior to her doctoral studies, she worked as a Gallery Assistant at Anthony Meier Fine Arts in San Francisco and previously interned in the Education Department at the de Young Museum.

Lesdi is a 2021 Ford Fellow and a recipient of the AAUW American Dissertation Fellowship. She holds a BA in Art History from New York University and an MA from the History of Art Department at the University of California, Berkeley.
