Caroline Fowler


Caroline Fowler has been named the associate director of the research and academic program at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts. She joins the museum following her time as the A. W. Mellon Fellow in the Physical History of Art at Yale University, where she taught graduate seminars and organized workshops on the topic.

Olivier Meslay, director of the Clark Art Institute, said in a statement, “Caroline Fowler is an exceptional scholar who brings many different perspectives, and great vitality and intelligence to the Research and Academic Program. We are delighted to have her join the Clark’s staff and look forward to the dynamic programs she will nurture through her work.”

Fowler, who has published a book on the intersections between artistic practice and philosophy, Drawing and the Senses: An Early Modern History, said, “I hope to contribute to maintaining RAP’s legacy as a site for polemical and field-changing academic research while fostering what makes RAP unique as a place of inquiry—impacted by the beauty of the natural landscape, the rigor of the Williams College Graduate Program in the History of Art, and the dynamic presence of the Clark’s collection and exhibition programming.”
