Eduard Andrei and Alina Gherasim

The 2024 Tyler Visiting Fellowship has been awarded to Dr. Eduard Andrei, head of the the Department for Modern Art and Architecture – G. Oprescu Institute of Art History, and to artist Alina Gherasim. The Fellows will develop their project, The woman artist in the communist regime in Romania, represented in the Tyler Collection, and present a research-in-progress seminar and a public lecture at the conclusion of their project.
The Tyler Visiting Fellowship is a biannual scholarship for art historians and artists that funds research fellows within the Tyler Collection/University of Tasmania.
The Tyler Collection of Romanian and Modern Art comprises more than 1500 items - paintings, works on paper, sculptures, ceramics, religious icons, books, catalogues, posters, photographs, research essays and letters. In 2013, the Collection was gifted to the University of Tasmania by Geoffrey and Frances Tyler.
