“New conditions create new possibilities and demands for new versions of ourselves…. It’s about transformation. It’s using the excuse of art to transform life, which is this wonderful perversion of the way we normally think about it.”  – David Getsy, 6.28.13 at Denny Gallery

David Getsy writes on modern and contemporary art and performance.  His research focuses on the use of sexualities and genders as resources for artistic practice.  His books include Scott Burton: Collected Writings on Art and Performance, 1965-1975 (2012) and Rodin: Sex and the Making of Modern Sculpture (2010), and he has written essays on such artists as John Chamberlain, Nancy Grossman, Alberto Giacometti, Pablo Picasso, Ernesto Pujol, and Amber Hawk Swanson.  He teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he is the Goldabelle McComb Finn Distinguished Professor of Art History and Chair of the Department of Art History, Theory, and Criticism.
