Darby English is the Carl Darling Buck Professor of Art History at the University of Chicago. A recent monograph, To Describe a Life: Notes at the Intersection of Art and Race Terror (2019), received the 2020 Frank Jewett Mather Award from the College Art Association. With Charlotte Barat, he co-edited Among Others: Blackness at MoMA (2019), where English was Adjunct Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture from 2014 until 2020. Recent essays consider the art of Rachel Harrison, Silke Otto-Knapp, Martin Puryear, and self-aggrandizing theorizations of the ‘outsider’ in late modernism.
