Gregory Sholette

Gregory Sholette is an artist, activist and writer. He was a founding member of several collectives such as Political Art Documentation and Distribution, REPOhistory and Gulf Labor. In his artistic work and seven books – including Art as Social Action (with Chloë Bass, 2018), Delirium and Resistance (2017), Dark Matter (2011), It’s The Political Economy, Stupid (with Oliver Ressler, 2012) – Sholette reflects upon decades of activist art that, for its ephemerality, politics and market resistance, might otherwise remain invisible. Sholette holds a PhD in History and Memory Studies from the University of Amsterdam (2017). He teaches Studio Art and co-directs the Social Practice Queens MFA program at Queens College, CUNY. He is an associate of the Art, Design and the Public Domain program of Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.
