Matthew Higgs is an acclaimed artist and curator, whose projects are known for their focus on under-recognized artists, collaboration, books and ephemera. Since 2004, he has been the Director and Curator of White Columns, New York's oldest alternative art space.
From 2001 to 2004, he was curator of the Wattis Institute of Contemporary Art in San Francisco, and prior to that he was a curator at the ICA in London. Higgs has worked with artists including Peter Doig, Martin Creed, Judy Linn, Chris Ofili, Jeremy Deller, and many others. He writes frequently for Artforum, Frieze, and other publications. His own art uses book pages and enigmatic language to address issues of creativity, site, and audience.
