Anne Doran

City Guides Editor,

Anne Doran has written for publications including Artforum, Art in America, ARTnews, Mousse, Collector Daily, and Time Out New York. The Dream Colony: A Life in Art, based on her interviews with legendary curator Walter Hopps and edited by New Yorker fiction editor Deborah Treisman, was published in 2017 by Bloomsbury. From 1996 to 2004, Anne was an editor at the art and literary quarterly Grand Street; between 2005 and 2006 she was a senior editor at ARTnews. After seven years as publications editor for the contemporary art gallery Feature Inc, she returned to Art Media, the parent company of Art in America and ARTnews, first as a senior editor at ARTnews and now as City Guides editor for, the online edition of Art in America’s Guide to Museums, Galleries and Artists. In the 1980s and ’90s, Anne showed her artwork in the US at 303 Gallery, PS1, Hallwalls, Artists Space, and the New Museum of Contemporary Art, and in Europe at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, and the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, among other venues. In 2015 her work was included in the ninth White Columns Annual—a yearly event that New York Times art critic Roberta Smith once called “a view of the past year in the New York art world that is idiosyncratic, ultrahip and useful”; in 2017 Anne selected the show’s eleventh iteration. In 2014 and 2017 she had solo exhibitions at Invisible Exports, New York.
