Droitcour is a writer, translator and PhD candidate in comparative literature at New York University. He published the article “The Perils of Post-Internet Art” in A.i.A.‘s November 2014 issue; it grew out of his much-talked about blog post “Why I Hate Post-Internet Art,” published earlier this year. He also penned the April 2014 article “Young Incorporated Artists,” which looked at artist collectives like K-Hole and the Jogging.
Droitcour served as editor of Klaus_eBooks, a digital imprint for artists’ books published by New York’s Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery. Upcoming projects include editing “The Animated Reader: Poetry of Surround Audience,” a poetry anthology that will accompany “Surround Audience,” the New Museum’s 2015 triennial (Feb. 25-May 24), curated by Lauren Cornell and Ryan Trecartin.
Bentley edits publications for various institutions, notably the exhibition catalogues Gauguin: Metamorphoses (2014) and Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 1960-71 (forthcoming in 2015) for New York’s Museum of Modern Art, as well as the Museum der Moderne Salzburg’s Simone Forti: Thinking with the Body (2014).
Bentley previously worked as an editor and contributor to Artforum magazine. He has written on a diverse range of subjects, including the artist Robert Beck, HBO’s “Grey Gardens” and Qatar’s Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art.
