I was born in Athens, Georgia and received a BFA in drawing and painting from the University of Georgia, a MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, and a PhD in art history from the University of Georgia.
I was formerly represented by Althea Viafora Gallery and Information Gallery in NYC, and ID Galerie in Düsseldorf, Germany. In addition to solo shows at these commercial venues, I have also presented solo projects at the Jersey City Museum, P.S. 1 Museum and White Columns as well as being included in numerous group shows in Atlanta, New Orleans, NYC, Cologne and Paris. I was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Grant, and Fellowship Residencies at the MacDowell Colony, Cite International des Arts (Paris), Hambidge Center, and the P.S. 1 National Studio Program.
Prior to teaching at Georgia State University (2001-11), I worked as the Curatorial Assistant at the following New York City institutions: The New Museum of Contemporary Art, the Guggenheim Museum and Artists Space. I was formerly the Assistant Director of The New York Kunsthalle and the Gallery Director and Curator for the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. I am currently the Director of Curatorial Affairs at the Zuckerman Museum of Art.
