Megan N. Liberty is an arts writer & editor in Brooklyn.
I write about artists’ books, ephemera, and archives.
I am the Art Books section editor at the Brooklyn Rail and co-founder of Book Art Review. My writing appears in Hyperallergic, ArtReview, Artforum.com, art-agenda, Art in America, Frieze, NY Review of Books, LA Review of Books, White Review, Art in Print, and elsewhere. I have led and participated in public conversations on artist’s publishing and books with the Brooklyn Rail, Center for Book Arts & Printed Matter’s Contemporary Artist Book Conference, Hill Art Foundation, and Miriam Gallery. I have been invited to speak to undergraduate and graduate classes about artists’ books and criticism at SMFA Tufts, the New School, Boston University, and Mills College.
I was a 2019-20 AICA/USA and Creative Capital/The Andy Warhol Foundation’s Arts Writing Workshop participant. I have an MA in Art History, with distinction, from the Courtauld Institute of Art, London and a BA in English from Dickinson College, PA.
Currently I am curating a historical exhibition of artists' books, Craft & Conceptual Art: Reshaping the Legacy of Artists’ Books, which will be accompanied by a fully illustrated scholarly catalogue, and will open at Center for Book Arts in 2022 and travel to San Francisco Center for the Book and Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
