Mira Schor

1.– I first met Harry and Cathy through our dear mutual friends Mike and Gail Mazur, I think in provincetown, in the mid-90s, and then have seen them at Mike-related events in New York, greeting each other with ever increasing warmth and friendship over the years.

2. — Mira Schor is a painter and writer living in New York City. Schor’s visual work has balanced political concerns with formalist and material passions. Her work has included major periods in which gendered narrative and representation of the body has been featured, but the predominant focus of her work has been representation and referencing of language in drawing and paintings. Her honors include awards in painting from the Guggenheim and Pollock-Krasner Foundations, and the 1999 College Art Association’s Frank Jewett Mather Award in Art Criticism. She teaches in the MFA Program of the Fine Arts Department at Parsons The New School for Design. Schor is the author of Wet: On Painting, Feminism, and Art Culture and co-editor of M/E/A/N/I/N/G: An Anthology of Artists’ Writings, Theory, and Criticism (both from Duke University Press) and of M/E/A/N/I/N/G Online at http://writing.upenn.edu/pepc/meaning/. She is working on a new collection of her own writings on art and culture to be published by Duke University Press and also is editing The Extreme of the Middle, a collection of writings by the painter Jack Tworkov to be published by Yale University Press (both scheduled for publication in 2009). — November, 2007
