Karen Kurczynski is an Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She is the author of a forthcoming monograph on Asger Jorn based on her Ph.D. dissertation (Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, 2005), and co-curator of an exhibition on Jorn’s dialogues with other artists at the Museum Jorn in Denmark for the centennial of his birth in 2014. Her writing on modern and contemporary art, politics, and the Situationist International has appeared in Art Papers, Artforum, BlackFlash, October, Rutgers Art Review, Res, Women’s Art Journal, and Third Text. Her research has also focused on the CoBrA art movement, which was highly influential on Herbert Gentry's artwork during his residence in Scandinavia.
