    As an arts writer, more than 200 of my texts have been published including authoring, co-authoring, or contributing to 89 art-related books and exhibition catalogs; many of my publications have been translated into other languages: Bulgarian, Chinese, Finnish, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, and Spanish. I was US correspondent for Milan-based Flash Art, contributor to Madrid-based [Art Notes], contributor to London-based Contemporary, contributor to Seoul-based Eyeball, and am currently a Corresponding Editor, Art Nexus, Miami/Bogota.
