Claudia Eve Beauchesne

Senior Researcher

Claudia Eve Beauchesne is a writer, art historian and archivist. Born in Montreal, Canada, she holds an interdisciplinary Bachelor of Art from Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia, and a Master’s degree in Art and Design History from the Pratt Institute in New York City. She is a regular contributor to the biannual arts and culture magazine Kennedy, and is currently at work on a book documenting New York’s East Village art scene of the 1980s. Drawn to Los Angeles for its warm weather and mythical aura of glamour and decadence, she stayed for its diversity and for its eclectic architecture, which never fails to spark her imagination. She is most interested in portraying people, places and subcultures through interviews and oral histories.
