—— Born in Manhattan. Three degrees and a varsity letter from Columbia; M.Litt. from Trinity College Dublin. Sometime editor-in-chief of Artforum. Taught at Barnard, Harvard and Hofstra; Centenary Fellow and Visiting Professor of History of Art, Edinburgh College of Art, 2006-09. Guggenheim fellowship; first American recipient of research grant from Malevich Society.

February, 2008 An addition: I have been editing ‘Edinburgh College of Art Occasional Papers on Architectural Art.’ No. 1 is supposedly in production (my ‘history’ of their college building), and I am editing No. 2 now. And just out is a nice catalogue with essay by me for a show of Tom’s (Nozkowski) work at Trinity College Dublin.
