Research Interests

As well as having published on the intellectual histories of modernism, the broad focus of my recent research has considered how time is written into the work of art. My study Retroactivity and Contemporary Art, published in 2018 by Bloomsbury considers contemporary art’s relationship with both history and historical materials. My next monograph, forthcoming on Intellect in 2020, seeks to examine the notion, following Jean-Francois Lyotard, that paintings function as ‘sites of time.’
