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 twentieth century art.

I am the Linda Nochlin Visiting Assistant Professor at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, where my remit is to teach and advise graduate work on topics in feminist and queer theoretical approaches to global modern and contemporary art.

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