Paul Galvez
Visiting Lecturer in Art

Modern art from the nineteenth-century to the present; art criticism and theory; landscape, histories of materialism, colonialism, formalism, and anti-modernisms.


Research interests include landscapes of Gustave Courbet; Impressionism; Paul Gauguin's Tahitian period; Russian avant-garde; postwar and contemporary abstract painting; and the poetics of matter.

I teach a nineteenth-century European art lecture course; seminars on colonialism, the decorative arts; and an introductory survey to art history.

Other experience includes art criticism for Artforum, Texte zur Kunst, Art News; curator of "Martin Barré: Paintings and Photoconceptual Works, 1967-76" (Galerie Buchholz, Cologne) and "Arrhythmia: Martin Barré and R.H. Quaytman" (Galerie Nathalie Obadia, Paris); and exhibition catalog essays on Gustave Courbet and Brice Marden.
