Moran Sheleg

Moran Sheleg is a Visiting Tutor in the History & Theory of Visual Culture at the Ruskin School of Art, convening a course on contemporary painting.

Moran Sheleg is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Paul Mellon Centre. Her research explores the critical discourse surrounding painting since the mid-twentieth century and painting’s place in contemporary practice, particularly in relation to digital technology and its social, historical, and psychological implications. 

Moran received a BA (Hons) in art history from the University of York (2009), an MPhil from Cambridge (2010), and an MA (2011) and PhD (2017) from UCL. Her doctoral thesis, which was fully-funded by the London Arts and Humanities Partnership (AHRC), focused on artistic practices from the 1960s that questioned the presumed crisis facing painting at the time. She is currently working on a monograph and a series of articles that develop this research. Her writing has appeared in the Journal of Contemporary Painting,Tate ResearchThe Burlington Magazine and Object.
