Tianna Uchacz is an art historian and the 2016–2017 liaison to the Making and Knowing Project at Columbia University. She earned her PhD in 2016 from the University of Toronto. Her dissertation, entitled “The Sensual Body and Artistic Prowess in Netherlandish Painting ca. 1540–1570,” addressed the various forms and functions of the erotic nude in Netherlandish art. From May through July, she held the inaugural James Loeb Fellowship for the Classical Tradition in Art and Architecture at the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte in Munich. She is currently working on a book-length manuscript on the Netherlandish nude before Iconoclasm. During her time at the Institute she was also in the early stages of a new project on the art and intellectual culture of later Renaissance Bruges, with a particular focus on the work of Marcus Gheeraerts.
