Holland Cotter

Holland Cotter, senior art critics of The New York Times, will speak on "Art, Writing, Life, Writing, Art" at 5 p.m. Thursday, April 25, in the Shapiro Admissions Building presentation room.

The event is free and open to the public.

Cotter, a 2009 Pulitzer Prize winner, was raised in Boston, attended Harvard College and worked as a freelance critic for a number of prestigious publications. He held editorial positions at New York Art Journal, Art News and Art in America, and pursued graduate studies in Indian Buddhist art.

A staff critic at The Times since 1998, his trenchant, witty and gripping criticism has ranged from Renaissance painting to contemporary art collectives in New York, with a particular expertise in Asian art. The articles produced during a 2009 residency in China, vividly capturing not only the emerging avant-garde but also probing larger trends in a burgeoning contemporary art scene and associated social, political and cultural dynamics, garnered Cotter the Pulitzer Prize for criticism for that year.

Cotter is the final speaker in the 2013 Art in Dialogue series funded by the Brandeis Arts Council.
