While I am a studio artist, I have also been a scholar, and I am now bringing these trainings together. My current project, which began in 2016, is to reinterpret Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907). Initial results of this effort appeared in Textual Cultures in August 2021: “Books at the Borders of Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon.” In 2021-22, I am a resident critic in the Core Program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Artworks and writings are archived at www.karen-schiff.com.
