ABOUT

I am a writer, curator, and artist whose practice explores the boundaries between research and creative production. After my tenure as the Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Curatorial Fellow at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, I began my new post as the Andrew W. Mellon Curator for Research as part of the Integrated Arts Research Initiative at the Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas. A founding member of the idea collective, John Q, my collaborative projects explore public intervention, queer memory, and archival practices. I have served on the editorial advisory board for Art Papers magazine, as an associate editor for the Journal for Artistic Research (Bern, Switzerland), as co-editor for a special issue of Visual Methodologies on participatory research, and currently as co-editor for “Inhabiting Cultures,” a special issue of the Journal of American Studies. I received an MA in Visual and Critical Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a practice-based PhD as an Arts and Science fellow from Emory University’s Graduate Institute of the Liberal Arts. Curatorial work has been reviewed by Art Papers, Art in America, ARTnews, Contemporary (UK), Public Art Review and Sculpture magazine, among others.
