Cora Hatshepsut Gilroy-Ware is a scholar and artist. Broadly speaking her work centres on classicizing European art with a focus on obscure British and Italian sculpture and painting. She has collaborated with Tate Britain, the Courtauld Institute and the Royal College of Art and held visiting scholarships at the Yale Center for British Art, the Huntington Library and the Center for Postcolonial and Gender Studies at Università L’Orientale in Naples.
During the 2015-2016 academic year she was the Materialities, Texts and Images fellow at California Institute of Technology and the Huntington Library. From October 2016 she holds a Visiting Research Fellowship at the Institute of Advanced Studies, University College London.
Her own visual art cultivates art history as art practice. Continually making throughout and alongside her studies, she is currently engaged in a series of mixed-media pieces based on Aby Warburg's Mnemosyne Atlas. She uses the visual in combination with the textual to illuminate her research, re-interpret and open up otherwise remote pasts.
