I work through Performative Diagrammatics, a discursive and artistic practice that explores epistemic diversity and includes elements of facilitation, performance, installation, and video. Work takes place at conferences, exhibitions, retreats and other convenings, which in turn become occasions for addressing it through writing and publication. I am a professor and currently serve as the chair of the department of Arts Administration and Policy at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
