Brian Sholis

I am the executive director of Gallery TPW, a not-for-profit artist-run centre in Toronto, and also work as an editor and writer. From 2013 to 2016 I was curator of photography at the Cincinnati Art Museum and, prior to that, spent more than a decade working in New York at such organizations as Aperture Foundation and Artforum. My first book, Kentucky Renaissance: The Lexington Camera Club and Its Community, 1954–1974, was published during fall 2016 by Yale University Press. It accompanied an exhibition at the of the same name. Subjektiv, an exhibition I co-curated with the editorial board of the Norwegian art journal Objektiv, opened June 3, 2017, at the Malmö Konsthall. It travels to the Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo this autumn.

I have moderated a discussion between a police chief and a civil-rights lawyer, juried international art prizes, lectured on patriotic monuments in WWI-era New York, interviewed experimental musicians and literary scholars, helped conceive an iOS app for a legacy publisher, and taught the American history survey to undergraduates.
