Controversy, Criticism, and the Archive: Warhol and Wojnarowicz




Humanities Building, Room 2035
A talk by Dr. Jennifer Sichel.

Jennifer Sichel holds a PhD from The University of Chicago, where she completed a dissertation titled “Criticism without Authority: Gene Swenson, Jill Johnston, Gregory Battcock.” Her research investigates how art criticism became a site for queer experiments with language, activism, and intermedia practice in the 1960s and 70s. Her article, “‘Do you think Pop Art’s queer?’ Gene Swenson & Andy Warhol” appears in the Oxford Art Journal. Her work has been supported by fellowships from the Smithsonian Archives of American Art, the Terra Foundation for American Art, and the Humanities Division at the University of Chicago. She holds a BA in art history and philosophy from Boston University and an MA from the Williams College Graduate Program in the History of Art.
