Conor Moynihan, Assistant Curator, Prints, Drawings & Photographs, RISD Museum, Providence, RI.

Connor Moynihan is the Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellow at the RISD Museum in Providence, RI. As a PhD candidate at the State University of New York at Buffalo, he is working on a dissertation titled "Queer Spectacles, Precarious Bodies: Remainders of Orientalism, Primitivism, and Exoticism in Contemporary Transnational Art and Performance from the Middle East." A version of his first chapter, “Timelessness and Precarity in Orientalist Temporality: Mehdi-Georges Lahlou’s Aesthetics of Disorientation,” is forthcoming later this year for the journal Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual Culture (2019). 

In addition, Conor has curated exhibitions on queer art (Drama Queer, 2016, Vancouver, BCE, with Jonathan D. Katz), the relationship between illness and health (Ill at Ease: Dis-ease in Art, 2017, Buffalo, NY), and most recently on forms of giving and taking care (Three Acts, Three Scenes: Your Care, My Care, Careful Care, 2018, Brooklyn, NY, with Natalie Fleming). He has written criticism for a number of print and on-line journals, including Artforum. His research also encompasses Middle Eastern studies and disability studies.
