Brian Sholis

I am the executive director of Gallery TPW, a not-for-profit artist-run centre in Toronto, and also work as a curator, editor, and writer. From 2013 to 2016 I was curator of photography at the Cincinnati Art Museum and, prior to that, I spent more than a decade working in New York at such organizations as Aperture Foundation and Artforum. My first book, Kentucky Renaissance: The Lexington Camera Club and Its Community, 1954–1974, was published in 2016 by Yale University Press. It accompanied an exhibition of the same name. “Subjektiv,” an exhibition I co-curated with the editorial board of the Norwegian art journal Objektiv, was on view this summer at the Malmö Konsthall. It will be on view at the Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo from November 24, 2017, to January 21, 2018.

I have moderated a discussion between a police chief and a civil-rights lawyer, juried international art prizes, lectured on patriotic monuments in WWI-era New York, interviewed experimental musicians and literary scholars, helped conceive an iOS app for a legacy publisher, and taught the American history survey to undergraduates.
