Welcome to Instruments of Memory. I’m Claudia Pretelin. I’m an art historian, independent researcher, and arts administrator based in Los Angeles, California. This blog is my long-term art history documentation project. It has evolved with time and I find myself now focusing on personal interviews with women in the arts. I ask about their work, their interests, and future projects. If I´m lucky I´ll get an anecdote or maybe even advice that I find inspirational. If this intrigues you I encourage you to check in on occasion and maybe even take a dive into the archives.

Thanks for stopping by!
