The Library is pleased to announce the appointment of Liz Glass as the Digital Scholarship Editor. This position is a part of the Mellon funded initiative to support interactive digital publications by Brown faculty. An editor, writer, and curator Liz is well prepared to fulfill this important new position in the Library’s Center for Digital Scholarship.
Liz holds a Bachelor’s Degree in American Studies from Scripps College and a Master’s Degree in Curatorial Practice from the California College of the Arts. Prior to her appointment at Brown, Liz served as the Getty Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative Fellow at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. At the Walker, Liz worked on a series of digital publications, The Living Collections Catalogue, as part of an online publishing initiative supported by the Getty Foundation. She is the co-editor of the most recent volume of the catalogue entitled Art Expanded, 1958-1978.
Prior to joining the Walker in 2013, Liz was the Assistant Curator at the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts in San Francisco where she developed exhibitions and publications of international contemporary art. During her time at the Wattis (2011-2013), Liz served as the managing editor for the exhibition catalogue, When Attitudes Became Form Become Attitudes, and co-editor of the anthology, Give Them the Picture.
While her interdisciplinary background focused on 20th century American literature and media, her recent research has focused on time-based contemporary art practices. Liz has developed exhibition and publication projects with the Walker, the Wattis, the Jewish Museum of New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.
Liz is also the Associate Editor of the bi-annual journal on exhibition making, The Exhibitionist. She is a regular contributor to Daily Serving, and The Art Book Review. She has written for these publications as well as for Art Papers, Art Practical, and the San Francisco Arts Quarterly. Her most recent publications include a text on the musician and filmmaker Tony Conrad in The Living Collections Catalogue, and a forthcoming interview with the light artist Tony Martin for the 2015 catalogue, Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia.
