She is particularly concerned with the relationship between art, architecture, and the built environment, and has a professional interest in curatorial practices and museum studies. Before completing her PhD at the Freie Universität Berlin, she worked as curator at the Tate Modern in London and the Fresno Metropolitan Museum in California. Dr. Bieber is currently completing her book manuscript Construction Sites: American Artists Engage the Built Environment, 1960-75, and has began work on a second book that focuses on American Regionalism in art, architecture, and urban planning. Her scholarly work addresses the social role of art within the broader field of visual and material culture.
