Abigail Ashford
Abigail Ashford is a writer interested in artistic representations of nonhuman identities and ecologies. She graduated from the University of Oxford in 2017 with a First Class Honours degree in History of Art. Inspired by the teaching of her thesis supervisor, Professor Craig Clunas, she won a scholarship to undertake an M.A. in Global China: Modern and Contemporary Chinese Art and Geopolitics at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London. With the mentoring of Professor Wenny Teo she developed a keen interest in ecologically engaged art in Asia and the intersections between animal studies and art history. She currently writes for London-based magazines such as GarageLand and assists at Transition Two Gallery while studying Mandarin.
