Claire Bishop, professor of art history, is widely considered to be an original thinker and creative interpreter of contemporary art, as well as a dynamic teacher. Her 2002 Ph.D. from the University of Essex was published as Installation Art: A Critical History and quickly became an indispensable resource for anyone interested in the subject; her edited volume, Participation is also highly regarded. Her book Artificial Hells: Participatory Art and the Politics of Spectatorship won the College Art Association’s 2013 Frank Jewett Mather Award for art criticism. Forthcoming projects include a short book on Merce Cunningham’s Events, and Disordered Attention, a collection of essays about contemporary art and performance since the 1990s. Her books and articles have been translated into twenty languages, and she is a Contributing Editor to Artforum. See her website on Academia.edu and online archive.
