Nikita Costantini

Nikita Costantini is a senior at the University of Pittsburgh majoring in History of Art and Architecture and double minoring in German Language Studies and Museum Studies. After graduation in December 2016, she plans to move to Germany to work and practice her language skills.

In the summer of 2015 Nikita was awarded a Benjamin A. Gilman International scholarship to study Metropolitan Studies and Architecture in Berlin, Germany, and conduct an individual research project concerning Dark Tourism in Nuremberg. Her most recent research focuses on German post-war art and artists, in particular Neo-Expressionist artist Georg Baselitz. In her honors thesis, Nikita explores the reception of Baselitz in London throughout the 1980s, a time during which German artists began to make a resurgence in the international art scene. Nikita will be focusing on two main group exhibitions providing an overview of Baselitz’s time in London and how critics perceived his work, and will discuss  the most recent group exhibition featuring Baselitz.
