María del Mar González-González is the Raymond C. Morales Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Utah. She holds a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, specializing in Modern and Contemporary art of Latin America and U.S. Latino/a art. Her dissertation, The Politics of Display: Identity and State at the San Juan Print Biennial, 1970-1981, explores this biennial as a space for the construction and redefinition of cultural and national identities in the late twentieth century. At the core of this investigation are the complex cultural and political relations among the U.S. and Puerto Rico and other Latin American nations. Her research interests in the field include art biennials, the global art market, museum collections and displays, national identity, diversity and multiculturalism, political art, institutional history, photography, and reprographic arts. She has held numerous fellowships in museums and cultural institutions including the Getty Foundation, the National Museum of American History-Smithsonian Institution, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Phillips Collection, and the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico. Currently, she is working on an article on the Puerto Rico-based conceptual art team of Allora & Calzadilla.
