Lexington Davis is an AHRC-funded PhD candidate at the University of St Andrews.

She has previously held curatorial and research positions at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Recently, she has organised exhibitions at the Neue Galerie – Tiroler Künstlerschaft, Innsbruck; the Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center, Budapest; and the Finnish Museum of Photography, Helsinki.
