Claire Gilman is Chief Curator at The Drawing Center in New York. Over the past twelve years, she has overseen the museum’s curatorial program, organizing more than fifty exhibitions and public programs and authoring nearly as many catalogues. She has organized projects that range from the first solo museum shows of artists like Huguette Caland (first US museum show), Torkwase Dyson, Natalie Frank, and Eddie Martinez, to new considerations of work by established artists such as Cecily Brown, Rashid Johnson, and Terry Winters, as well as conceptually-driven group shows including The Pencil Is a Key: Drawings by Incarcerated Artists (2019) (co-organized with The Drawing Center’s curatorial team), and For Opacity: Elijah Burgher, Nathaniel Mary Quinn, and Toyin Ojih Odutola (2018). Gilman completed her Ph.D. at Columbia University and has taught art history and critical theory at Columbia; the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College; the Corcoran College of Art and Design; The Museum of Modern Art; and the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in addition to lecturing on modern and contemporary art throughout the country. She has written for Art Journal, CAA Reviews, Documents, Frieze, and October and has authored numerous essays for art books and museum exhibitions.
