Kamini Vellodi is Lecturer in Contemporary Art Theory and Practice at Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh. Her research interests and publications lie at the intersections of modern and contemporary continental philosophy, critical theory, art history, art historiography and Renaissance visual arts.
Her book, Tintoretto’s Difference. Deleuze, Diagrammatics and Art History (Bloomsbury Academic, 2018) is a study of the 16th century painter, drawing upon Gilles Deleuze’s philosophy of the diagram. Bringing together philosophical, art historical, art theoretical and art historiographical analysis, it is the first in-depth exploration of the implications of Deleuze’s philosophy for the understanding of early modern art and for the discipline of art history.
Kamini completed her PhD in Philosophy at the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy at Middlesex University. Prior to this, she studied Fine Art, Painting at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design, Chelsea College of Art and Design and The Royal College of Art in London.
