Nina Pelaez

Nina Pelaez is the 2014-15 Kress Museum Interpretation Fellow at the High Museum of Art. There, she developed High Art Connect, an interpretive blog focused on the intersections of art, social practice, and community engagement. She is passionate about fostering public engagement and inclusion within museums, and is particularly interested in the ways that theoretical models— particularly queer, feminist, and critical race theories—might help inform interpretive practice and engagement within cultural institutions. Her research interests include the exploration of trauma, memory, and the body in contemporary photography and public installation. She holds an M.A. from the Williams College Graduate Program in the History of Art, and a B.A. in Art History and English Literature from Swarthmore College. Nina blogs at and tweets @ninapelaez.
