I first fell under the sway of contemporary art as an assembly of Louise Bourgeois eye benches took shape outside my freshman-year dorm room at Williams College, and the visual arts and landscape remain at the core of my practice as a writer, researcher, and educator. After a stint in Washington, D.C., I moved west for graduate studies in art history at the University of Washington, where I wrote my thesis about British architectural historian and critic Reyner Banham reading and writing Los Angeles in the late 1960s and early ’70s. Museum education has been my bread and butter, and I’ve worked as an educator at the National Museum of Women in the Arts and the Seattle Art Museum and volunteered as an exhibition guide at the Henry Art Gallery. I also frequently give tours of exhibitions and buildings in Seattle and have lectured locally on institutional critique; film and architecture; and ruins. Currently, I teach critical and contextual studies to art, design, and film students at Cornish College of the Arts and am working on essays about the American artist Joseph Cornell as well as Tia Kramer and Tamin Totzke’s recent Seattle performance “Study of Time and Motion” and its relationship to ideas about the body, efficiency, and work.
