SAIC Professor Named 2013 Guggenheim Fellow

On April 11 the New York Times announced the recipients of the Guggenheim Memorial Foundation’s 2013 Fellowships, including SAIC Professor Nora Taylor (Art History, Theory and Criticism). Recognized in the Theatre Arts category, Taylor is one of just 173 fellows selected from over 3,000 applicants. “I will be looking at performance art practices in Singapore, Vietnam, and Burma as a strategy for survival, not a reaction against mainstream art practices but rather, the only medium possible in environments that are hostile to contemporary art,” Taylor says.
