Dr. Floyd’s research is concerned with the history of art in twentieth-century Germany with a specific focus on the history and historiography of art exhibitions and their mediation in catalogues, installation photographs, and film. Dr. Floyd has conducted extensive research on the history of documenta, an on-going exhibition series founded in 1955 in Kassel, Germany. Her current book project explores a set of installation photographs of Wilhelm Lehmbruck’s Expressionist sculpture Kneeling Woman (1911) taken at different modernist exhibitions in Germany and the United States, from the Armory Show in 1913 to the first documenta in 1955. She also recently served as guest editor of a special issue of the journal Dada/Surrealism that explores the history of avant-garde art exhibitions. Secondary areas of focus include contemporary African art and the American avant-garde.
