His research has focused on art and poliics, specifically the ways that contemporary artists in Israel-Palestine and Lebanon address history. He edited the book Places of a Present Past (New York: Publication Studio, 2015), contributed to Beyond the Aesthetic and the Anti-Aesthetic (eds. James Elkins and Harper Montgomery, Penn State University Press, 2013), Public Servants: Art and the Crisis of the Common Good edited by Johanna Burton (New Museum and MIT Press, 2016), and is in the process of editing a volume about Tania Bruguera’s, The Francis Effect, a project co-produced by the Guggenheim Museum, the Santa Monica Museum of Art, and Southern Methodist University. He has published interviews with Kader Attia, Khaled Hourani, AL Steiner and AK Burns, Omer Fast, Jill Magid, Walead Beshty, Yoshua Okon, and Nicholas Schaffhausen.

His curatorial projects include False Flags with Pelican Bomb in New Orleans (2016), Emergency Measures at the Power Station (2015), Tamy Ben Tor at Testsite (2012), Out of Place at Lora Reynolds Gallery (2011), Queer State(s) at the Visual Arts Center in Austin (2011), Yuri’s Office by Eve Sussman and the Rufus Corporation at Ft Worth Contemporary Arts (2010) and was the curatorial team for the 2013 Texas Biennial. In 2016, he was the co-curator and co-producer for New Cities Future Ruins, a convening that invited artists, designers and thinkers to re-imagine and engage the extreme urbanism of America’s Western Sun Belt.

The VCUarts Department of Painting + Printmaking is a vibrant community of artists and scholars informed by a practice of studio work and research with strong emphasis in critical thinking. The department is large and diverse, with academic programming designed to impart intelligence and build student’s confidence in their discipline.
