He is editor-at-large for Critical Correspondence and his writing and interviews have been published by Adult Contemporary #01, Artforum, Triple Canopy, Recess Art, les presses du réel and The Museum of Modern Art. In Fall 2016, with Ishmael Houston-Jones, he co-curated Danspace Project’s Platform: Lost & Found, exploring themes of AIDS, absence and queer performance.
