Biography

Terri Cohn is a writer, curator, and art historian, and was a contributing editor to Artweek magazine for 20 years. Fascinated by the zeitgeist for decades, she is currently intrigued by contemporary interpretations of traditional genres, the conceptual life of objects, and a return to storytelling. Cohn is the author of hundreds of essays, interviews, reviews, and catalog essays largely focused on artists who are involved with contemporary art and media concerns, including conceptual art, gender issues, the intersections between static and time-based media, and evolving public art practices. She has contributed to several books including A Sculpture Reader: Contemporary Sculpture Since 1980 (ISC Press 2006); Letters from Linda Montano (Routledge, 2005); Women Artists of the American West (ed. Susan Ressler, McFarland & Co. 2003); and RE/Placing Public Art, (2007). Her curatorial work over the past 25 years has included numerous site-specific public and gallery installations and several performance art series.
