Claire Gilman (Ph. D. Columbia University) is Chief Curator at The Drawing Center in New York where, over the past eight years, she has overseen the curatorial program, organizing more than thirty exhibitions and public programs and authoring nearly as many catalogues. Projects have ranged from first-time museum shows of such artists as Torkwase Dyson, Natalie Frank, and Eddie Martinez, to reconsiderations of the work of established artists like Cecily Brown, Rashid Johnson and Terry Winters, to conceptually-driven group shows. In general, Gilman is committed to an expansive vision of drawing as a mediator between self and world. Recently, Gilman spearheaded Winter Term, a new initiative in which The Drawing Center partners with an artist or organization whose mission it is to explore the transformative role that drawing can play in civic and global society. Gilman has taught art history and critical theory at Columbia University; The Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College; The Corcoran College for Art and Design; the Museum of Modern Art; and the School of Visual Arts (SVA) and has lectured throughout the country on modern and contemporary art. She has written for Art Journal, CAA Reviews, Documents, Frieze and October and has authored numerous essays for art books and museum exhibitions.
