About

Katie

Katie Fong (she/her) is currently pursuing a major in Art History with a minor in Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity at Stanford University. She has previously worked in curatorial, collections, and engagement roles at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Cantor Arts Center, Stanford; and the National Palace Museum, Taipei, Taiwan. Most recently, she held a development role at the International Studio and Curatorial Program in New York, where she supported residencies for global artists and curators and the inaugural cohort of the Vision Fund, dedicated solely to contemporary BIPOC artists. Katie is passionate about decolonization and equity in the art world, and sees art curation, education, and praxis as tools towards our collective liberation. Her art history writing serves as an art form in itself— a poetic space for exploring the entanglements of identity, Otherness, personal and collective history, and diaspora. In high school, Katie was a finalist in the International Public Policy Forum, a Varsity swimmer, an Oral Interpreter, and a musical theater actress. In addition to working as an ambassador for the National Palace Museum back home in Taipei, she also mentored new youth docents, teaching them Chinese art history and public-speaking. When she is not haunting art museums and galleries, Katie enjoys painting, singing (both solo and in Stanford Mixed Company acapella!), traveling the world, living-room dancing, reading beautiful prose, and cultivating radical care.
