Juror for Collage, 2017

Gail Levin is Distinguished Professor of Art History, American Studies, and Women’s Studies at The Graduate Center and Baruch College of the City University of New York. The acknowledged authority on the American realist painter Edward Hopper, she is author of many books and articles on this artist, including the catalogue raisonné and Edward Hopper: An Intimate Biography. She has also focused on the art of women artists in historical cultural context, which let to biographies of Judy Chicago (2007) and of Lee Krasner (2011), as well as a book in 2013, a comprehensive website, and a touring exhibition of the art of the supercentenarian Theresa Bernstein (1890-2002), which was the product of Levin’s collaboration with several scholars including her doctoral students at the Graduate Center.
Her work on twentieth century and contemporary art has won international acclaim, been widely published, and translated across Europe, Asia, and Australia. Her articles cover a wide range – from the theory of artists’ biographies to explorations of the intersection of American and Asian cultures. Among the most recent are “Syd Solomon: Concealed and Revealed” and “Threading Jewish Identity: The Sara Stern in Sonia Delaunay.”
From October through January, she held a Distinguished Fulbright Chair in India, based in the South in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. Her Fulbright project, “American Art and India: Cultural Exchange Among Artists of India and the United States.” Levin’s work has been recognized by many grants from N.E.H., the Fulbright Association, the Smithsonian Institution, Rockefeller, Andrew Mellon, and Stonybrook Foundations, Brandeis, Harvard and Yale Universities, among many others. She has lectured internationally including for the U.S. State Department. Levin has also published and exhibited her photography, collages, and other art works. A show of her collage memoir, “On NOT Becoming An Artist,” was shown in May 2014 at the National Association of Women Artists in New York City, and again in Santa Barbara, Santa Fe, and in the Berkshires.
