Aruna D'Souza writes about modern and contemporary art, food, and culture; intersectional feminisms and other forms of politics; how museums shape our views of each other and the world; and books. Her work appears regularly in 4Columns.org, where she is a member of the editorial advisory board, as well as in publications including The Wall Street Journal, Art News, Garage, Bookforum, Momus, and Art Practical. Her food blog, Kitchen Flânerie, delves into questions of memory, trauma, diaspora, immigration, and cultural hybridity, along with very delicious recipes.
In addition to this writing, Aruna has extensive experience in programming and administration of cultural institutions, and has consulted for museums (including, in 2016-17, the Whitney Museum of American Art) on questions of diversity and inclusion, institutional bias, and creating robust publics for art viewing. She is also experienced in communications and marketing, institutional and grant writing, ghostwriting, and social media.
