Aesthetics?"Corris's work has been exhibited in museums, galleries, and private collections internationally since 1972. His critical writings on art and art theory have been published widely: in artist-run publications (Art-Language, The Fox, and Red-Herring), scholarly journals (Word & Image, Art Journal, and Art History), and in the international art press (Artforum, Art+Text, and Art Monthly, among others).Currently, Corris is the editor for a new series of monographs on art since the 1980s and continues to work with colleagues on the editorial board of Transmission Annual, which he cofounded in 2008. In 2014 Corris assumes the post of book-review editor for the College Art Association's Art Journal.This event is part of the Core Program's 2013–2014 lecture series.
