I am Chair of Contemporary Art Practice & Theory in The University of Edinburgh and Programme Director of MA Contemporary Art Theory, Edinburgh College of Art. My work involves inventing postdisciplinary methods to parasite the field of contemporary art. It is a pour of historical, critical, materialist and fictional approaches to writing charged and torn with curatorial, paragogical and artistic work. In the pursuit of para, ‘pata and psuedo-disciplinary methods, I frequently work collaboratively, adopting shared avatars that have interpretive flexibility. As a member of the International Art Critics Association, I am a critic for many international art publications, write for literary and political magazines, the popular press, television, commissioned monographs and artwriting publications and have curated exhibitions as part of international biennials as well as numerous projects at artist-led organisations. Additionally, I continue to conduct research on Contemporary Art in Britain since the 1970s.
