        Sarah Wilson

        curator, London

      1. Sarah Wilson has published extensively on post-1945 and contemporary art which she teaches at the Courtauld Insitute of Art, University of London.  She was principal curator of `Paris, Capital of the Arts, 1900-1968’ (Royal Academy of Arts, London and Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao in 2001-2) and curated the Pierre Klossowski retrospective exhibition and `The Vicious Circle’ for the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London in 2006. `Pierre Klossowski’ travelled to the Ludwig Museum, Cologne and  Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris in 2007. Her interests have expanded from the  internationalism of the School of Paris to Eastern Europe and contemporary Russia, and the wider questions of post-Modernism and post-Communism. The Visual World of French Theory: Figurations will be published by Yale University Press this spring, discussing the relationship between French philsophers from Sartre to Derrida and the painters about whom they wrote. She is currently working on a sequel, treating philosophers’ engagement with conceptual art,  photography and performance. This area will form part of her new MA `Global Conceptualism’, taught with Boris Groys as visiting Mellon Professor at the Courtauld in 2010-11. [Last updated 2010]
