Marina Kliger is the former Curatorial Liaison for the Bloomberg Connects initiative. She worked closely with curatorial and other departments to create and vet the knowledge base which the audience engagement team will use to answer visitor questions through the ASK app. She is a PhD candidate at the Institute of Fine Arts, where she is writing a dissertation about troubadour painting in early nineteenth-century France, and holds an MA in Art History from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. Before returning to graduate school in New York, she worked as a research associate at the Art Institute of Chicago—though she first came to museum work through a background in gallery teaching.
