Catherine Quan Damman 



Informed by feminist, queer, disability, and critical race studies, my research and teaching focus on the relationships between form, labor, and value in modern and contemporary art.

I am the Linda Nochlin Visiting Assistant Professor at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, where I teach and advise graduate work on topics in feminism and global contemporary art.


This year I am completing my first monograph, Performance: A Deceptive History, with the support of a 2022–2023 ACLS Fellowship.
