Formerly based in Berlin and New York, Archey has worked as an independent curator, editor, and art critic, and was awarded an Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant for short-form writing in 2015. Her book After Institutions (2022, Floating Opera Press) examines museums as a troubled, rapidly evolving public space and renews discussions around Institutional Critique. A frequent public speaker, she has recently given lectures at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Swiss Institute, Moderna Museet, MUDAM, and MMCA Seoul, among other institutions.
