Evan Moffitt is a writer and critic based in New York. His work examines the many ways individuals and institutions operating within and at the margins of visual art, architecture, performance, literature, film, theatre and dance negotiate with political, social and economic power structures. By focusing especially on artistic practices that engage with intersections between race, class, gender and sexuality, his work explores the ways art and culture are essential to democratic society, and the ways its publics are changing shape in the digital age.
Evan’s writing appears regularly in frieze, where he is Associate Editor, responsible for commissions from the Americas and Africa for the print magazine as well as frieze.com. His writing has also appeared in Aperture, Apollo, Art in America, BOMB, Flash Art, GARAGE, PARIS LA, PIN-UP, San Francisco Arts Quarterly and The White Review; as well as the Los Angeles Review of Books, where he served as Assistant Editor from 2014-15, and Contemporary Art Review Los Angeles, where he simultaneously served as Associate Editor. He was the 2016 Visiting Writer grantee for The Miami Rail, and has lectured at ICA Miami, the Hammer Museum, the International Center for Photography, New York University, and the University of California Los Angeles.
