I am an independent arts writer and editor - and occasional curator and artist - based in Brooklyn, New York. My writing has appeared in a wide variety of publications including Art Monthly, Artforum, Contemporary, Modern Painters, Time Out New York, Village Voice, and The Wire. I have held editorial posts at Art in America, Artforum, Contemporary, and Untitled, and have contributed to exhibition catalogues published by Art in General, La Biennale di Venezia, Lisson Gallery, Marlborough Gallery, Matthew Marks Gallery, the MIT List Visual Arts Center, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, P. S. 1 Contemporary Art Center, and the Photographers Gallery.

My grandfather, John Anthony Thwaites, was also an art critic. You can read about him here.

I am available for appropriate writing and editing projects; please contact me for freelance rates.
