Her writing appears in Artforum, Art in America, Bomb, CURA, Interview, LA Weekly, and Mousse, among others, and she has written catalogue essays on artists such as Sascha Braunig, Sam Falls, Samara Golden, Channa Horwitz, Joan Jonas, Shahryar Nashat, Laura Owens, Raymond Pettibon, Carol Rama, and Suellen Rocca for institutions including the New Museum, Moma PS1, Kunsthall Stavanger, Contemporary Art Museum Raleigh, and the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts among others. She has organized exhibitions and publications for the Hammer Museum, LA; Midway Contemporary Art, Minneapolis; Overduin and Kite, LA; and Kayne Griffin Corcoran, LA.
Lehrer-Graiwer is the editor of Pep Talk, a publication series begun in 2009, which has focused past monographic issues on artists and writers such as Dan Graham, Steve Kaltenbach, Bruce Hainley, and most recently Rhonda Lieberman. Lehrer-Graiwer runs a non-commercial alternative art space in an apartment building in Los Angeles, The Finley Gallery, begun in 2011 with a partner, which has presented over 25 exhibitions primarily by Los Angeles area artists—from Lisa Williamson and Brian Calvin to Christina Forrer and Piero Golia—many without gallery representation. Lecturing at art schools throughout Southern California, she has taught at Otis College of Art and Design and the University of Southern California. She holds degrees in art history from Harvard University and criticism and theory from Art Center College of Design.
Lehrer-Graiwer continues her long-term, ongoing close study of the artist Lee Lozano with a new book in the works on Lozano’s private notebooks.
This artist talk is part of the Welch Visiting Artist and Scholar Series at Georgia State University. It will take place in screening room 306 in the Creative Media Industries Institute.
