My name is Rifda Amalia. I recently move to New York City to pursue my Master degree in Museum Studies at New York University. I got my bachelor degree from the Fine Art Faculty, majoring in painting, Bandung Institute of Technolgy.
I was a teaching assistant in the Aesthetics And Theory of Arts Department-FSRD ITB (2014-2015), working as secretary for the 7th Asian Art Museum Director’s Forum (2013) and assistant curator in several projects for Indonesia National Gallery (ex. Manifesto #4, Indonesia Art Award, etc.). I also worked as Arts Program Officer for The British Council Indonesia mainly handling projects in visual arts, film and literature sector (2015-2016). Other than that, I like to curate exhibitions with my art collective YIFI (Young Indonesian Female Initiatives).
I like to write anything that passes my mind, so I will use this blog as a cathartic portal to share my experience here in New York city. I love to stroll around museums and art galleries, meet interesting new people, go to new places in the city and would love to share all of it through this blog. Other than that, I’m really passionate about swinging Icelandic music, learning French, quirky movies, awesome books and travel.
