Sarah Corona is an independent Writer and Art Historian based in New York. She holds a BA (with honors) in Fine Arts and a doctoral degree (with honors) in Art History from the University of Bologna (Italy), both with theses about Chinese Contemporary Art. She obtained the Certificate for Art and Business at NYU, New York in 2014.
One of her main interests is to discover how technology affects art and culture and how contemporary art works, realized with new media, touch the spectator and arouse that astonishment, which is often a fundamental ontological element for a work of art. She investigates furthermore art and politics in countries of conflicts and the cultural diversities in comparison to the European and American society. Bringing aspects of Art History into the context of contemporary art and culture is often subject of her writings, essays and exhibitions.
Sarah Corona writes and publishes about art and culture since 2009 on different international media outlets and in different languages. She writes exhibition essays and curatorial texts for a series of catalogs and is lecturer and guest curator at New York based arts organizations.
