Biography

As a scholar of Latin American and global contemporary art, I study the role played by art biennials in the expansion of the global contemporary art industry to new territories. I write extensively about contemporary art in Cuba and Mexico.

My most recent publications have appeared in The LA Review of Books, FIELD a journal of socially engaged art, and CONCRETA. My essay "Realism in the work of Maria Thereza Alves" will appear in Afterall journal Fall 2017 issue. In December 2016 Spanish press Consonni published Yo veo / tĂș significas, my Spanish translation of Lucy R. Lippard's I See / You Mean. I am co-author of the catalog of Los Sujetos, exhibition in the Spanish Pavilion of the 2015 Venice Biennale, and part of the editorial collective of FIELD, a journal of socially engaged art criticism.

During Summer Session 1 2017 I'll be teaching my first upper division seminar as instructor of record, VIS128C "20th Century Art as International Phenomenon".
