He has exhibited through out the United States and Europe. As a writer his work has appeared in Interview Magazine, Artforum, Out, and OutLook. He is the author of numerous catalog essays. In 1994 he co-curated with Lawrence Rinder the exhibition In a Different Light, the first major museum exhibition to examine the impact of queer artists on contemporary art.

Last year he finally paid off his student loans.

He is currently employed as the Chair of the ICP/Bard Masters program in Advanced Photographic Studies at the International Center of Photography.

For the past three years he has shared his life with Lehigh, a very self-possessed Boston terrier.

Unless otherwise credited all photographs on this site are taken by him.

Oh and he is me. If you have an interest in what I do, own a piece of mine or have any other connection, I’d love to hear from you. You can contact me via the comments on this page.

  1. Hello,

    I wrote a little bit about an exhibition you curated at New Langdon Arts in 1989…would you mind checking it out, it would be great if my memory could be refreshed
    about one of the pieces in it, if you recall. I hope
    you’ll give the audio pieces on the page a try as well,
    Thank you,
    Chris Sullivan
