Laura J. Allen

Curatorial Scholar | Exhibit Specialist

Based in New York City, I help cultural institutions create exhibits and digital media that reach people. My academic and professional experience is in the material and natural worlds of the Americas, particularly dress and textiles, with a focus on Indigenous cultures.

I'm a scholar of the Native Northwest Coast and Alaska, where I've connected Indigenous partners with a renowned museum hall, researched mistaken masks, and identified Alaskan stories. I also write journalism.
