Hal Foster

“Foster is one of those rare art theorists whose measured prose can engage a wider readership, cutting through the philosophical inflationism that afflicts much of the higher gossip among art critics.” – Guardian

Hal Foster is the author of numerous books, including The Art-Architecture Complex; The First Pop Age: Painting and Subjectivity in the Art of Hamilton, Lichtenstein, Warhol, Richter, and Ruscha; Bad New Days: Art, Criticism, Emergency; and, with Richard Serra, Conversations about Sculpture. He teaches at Princeton University, co-edits the journal October, and contributes regularly to the London Review of Books.
