Claire Bishop, Lecture
Wednesday, March 3, 2010 at 7:30 PM

Claire Bishop is an Associate Professor of Art History at the CUNY Grad Center, New York. She holds a Ph.D. from the University of Essex, England, and is an internationally acknowledged scholar of contemporary art. She is the author of two influential essays - Antagonism and Relational Aesthetics (October, 2004) and The Social Turn: Collaboration and its Discontents (Artforum, 2006) - that were instrumental not only in expanding the common understanding of collaborative art, but also rescuing the concept from a suffocating and facile altruism. Her first book, Installation Art: A Critical History, quickly became an indispensable resource on the subject, and her edited volume, Participation, is a thorough investigation into all forms of viewer-activated art. She is currently working on a history of spectatorship and socially engaged art in the 20th Century.
