Prior to commencing her doctoral experiments she was a Lecturer in the heritage of style and Curator of the Textile and Costume Collection at Jefferson University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She has published on the subject areas of museum reports and costume historical past, most just lately in a co-authored essay entitled “Heritage narratives in the electronic era: How digital systems have improved methods and equipment for style know-how, traditions, and memories” in the Investigation Journal of Textile and Clothing. She is at this time operating on her dissertation undertaking tentatively titled: “Fondazione Manner: Up to date Art, Brand Museums, and the Pursuit of Modern-day Italy” in which she uses four exhibitions of Italian art and manner to trace the prehistory of model museums and their special relationship to modern artwork in Italy.
In the course of her fellowship with the Centre for Italian Modern-day Art, Marcella will be doing the job on a job entitled “The Fashion of Advertising: Reference and Reproducibility, 1930-2018”. This project takes advantage of the artwork of commercial posters as a starting off stage to analyze the limits of reproducibility, from illustrations or photos to artworks to exhibitions. It requires the world of trend and fashion marketing as its particular level of inquiry, attempting to fully grasp the interplay between the visual language of manner and the operate of art, from Fortunato Depero’s unsuccessful Vogue covers in 1930 to the cultural backlash in the direction of Dolce & Gabbana ads in the 2010s.
