Alisa LaGamma has been a curator at The Metropolitan Museum of Art since 1996. In 2012, the Bard Graduate Center recognized her with its Iris Award for Outstanding Scholarship. Her 1995 Columbia University dissertation, “The Art of the Punu Mukudj Masquerade: Portrait of an Equatorial Society,” was based on a year of fieldwork in southern Gabon. Her exhibitions have addressed individual authorship, divination, genesis, duality, and reliquaries, among other topics.
