Description

Richard Meyer’s research and writings on modern and contemporary art focus on

the ongoing debate over sexuality and gender, its effects on modern art and visual

culture, and censorship and the public sphere. In lucid prose, he has addressed

queer perspectives, key feminist artists, and Andy Warhol’s fascination with Jews.

His most recent book What Was Contemporary Art? redefines "the contemporary" as

a condition of being alive to—and alongside—other moments, artists, and objects.

Meyer is Professor of Art History at Stanford University.
