The live Zoom event will conclude with a poetry reading. Register here!
American critic Sanford Schwartz is the author of several books—mostly studies of lesser-known painters, including modern American artist Rackstraw Downes, nineteenth-century Danish artist Christen Købke, and turn-of-the-twentieth-century British painter William Nicholson—as well as many shorter pieces of art and literary criticism. His most recent book is On Edward Hicks.
Curator and art historian Choghakate Kazarian was formerly a curator at the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris and taught at the École du Louvre. She has curated exhibitions on artists such as Lucio Fontana, Piero Manzoni, Karel Appel, and Henry Darger, and she has edited various exhibition catalogues and published on postwar art, outsider art, Marcel Duchamp, and Louis Michel Eilshemius. She is Editor-at-Large at the Brooklyn Rail and is a ph.d. candidate at the Courtauld Institute of Art, where she is writing a dissertation on Albert Pinkham Ryder. She is currently a Terra Foundation fellow at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
Contemporary artist and writer Brandt Junceau is best known for his figurative sculpture. He received a BA from Bard College in 1981. In 1991 he received a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Pollock Krasner Artist’s Grant. Junceau was awarded a DAAD (the German Academic Exchange Service) 2010-11 Artist Residency in Berlin. He has exhibited internationally; most recently Vandal at the Freud Museum in Vienna and Parasophia in Kyoto. He was included in the 2012 and 2016 American Academy of Arts and Letters Invitationals. He is a contributor to ArtForum and the Brooklyn Rail and is represented by Galerie Greta Meert, Brussels.
