Senior Researcher

Jeanne Dreskin is a researcher, writer, and curator based in Los Angeles. She holds a Ph.D. in the History of Art from the University of Pennsylvania, where her doctoral research focused on the evidentiary status of photography and its deployment by artists in the 1970s/80s to disclose and intervene into patterns of media and art world bias. She has previously held positions in the Curatorial and Publications Departments of The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA); The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); and Dia Art Foundation, New York, where she organized public programs and assisted on major curatorial and publication projects. She has independently organized exhibitions at galleries and arts organizations in Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia, and her writing and curatorial work has been featured by publications including Aperture, Artforum, and Frieze. As a Berggruen Researcher, Jeanne will focus on how questions of truth, evidence, and creativity evolve alongside emerging technologies and how their ethical stakes can be renegotiated through machine learning processes.
