16 Miles of String




I am an art critic based in New York and co-executive editor of ARTnews. From 2011 to 2014, I edited The New York Observer's GalleristNY, a website that I co-founded about the New York art world. My writing has appeared in W, New York, Bijutsu Techo, Modern Painters, and other publications, as well as catalogues for shows at the Whitney Museum, the Studio Museum, and  other museums and galleries. In 2005 I started 16 Miles of String, a blog about contemporary art and art history in New York that was supported by the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program. In 2013 I was named Critic of the Year in the Rob Pruitt Awards. I have a B.A. in art history and political science from Columbia University and an M.S.T. in early childhood and special education from Pace University. Here is a Q&A I did with Interview about my work.
