BIO
Hamilton Faris teaches Critical Theory and the History of Contemporary Art. She writes and speaks about art and visual culture at the intersection of globalization and climate change, especially in the Asia-Pacific region. She has published articles in Art Journal, October, Invisible Culture and Art Margins and has written essays for the Centre Pompidou and Oxford University Press. She edited the Fall 2015 special issue of Art Margins on Capitalist Realism. Her 2013 book about contemporary art’s relationship with global trade is called Uncommon Goods, published by Intellect. She is currently working on two projects: an archive of interviews with artists of Hawai‘i and a collection of essays about artists who deal with the effects of globalization on the climate titled Liquid Archives. In addition to her academic writing, she also speaks, curates, juries, and writes about liquid thinking for a liquid world.
