In 2010 he was awarded an Arts Writers Grant from Creative Capital/Andy Warhol Foundation. He has been the critic-in-residence at the Bronx Museum of the Arts and a lecturer at the Yale School of Art. From 2007-9, he was the managing director of the art fairs Volta (NYC) and NEXT (Chicago). In 1990 he founded the gallery Roebling Hall in Brooklyn.
The Intradisciplinary Seminar, sponsored by the The Cooper Union School of Art, presents a series of free, public lectures reflecting a broad range of contemporary art issues. Speakers include artists, writers, and thinkers currently engaged in a variety of practices. The emphasis is on interdisciplinary approaches, presenting new voices, international perspectives and scholarship across multiple fields. The series constitutes a lively forum for the exchange of ideas between practitioners, students, faculty and the public.
The Fall 2016 Intradisciplinary Seminar is part of the Robert Lehman Visiting Artist Program at The Cooper Union. We are grateful for major funding support from the Robert Lehman Foundation.
