After graduating from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill., Anne landed in Hong Kong, covering a variety of stories for publications, including about the emergence of the New Wave of contemporary Chinese art, culture, and dance. She relocated to Berlin, Germany, and worked as a journalist during Berlin’s -- and Eastern Europe’s -- cultural revival after the fall of the Iron Curtain. Berlin would soon become an epicenter for contemporary arts culture, drawing in art practitioners from around the globe. She then took a position in Miami as associate editor overseeing all cultural sections at Miami New Times, and has since written and edited for numerous publications about the vibrant arts scene that has started to sprout in South Florida, including writing regular art reviews for the Miami Herald and the Knight Foundation, and editing Artburst.
“Ever since humans first became conscious beings, the cultural arts have played an elemental role in our development. It could add beauty to everyday surroundings, but also help open up doors to exploration -- of histories, of aesthetics, of the world. If well done, contemporary expressions of dance, music, performance, the visual arts can be gorgeous, challenging, strange, but always begging you to keep your eyes wide open when looking at the world. And Artburst has a determined mission to document Miami’s dynamic growth in this endeavor.”
