Cooper is Art Writer in Residence at Spaces Gallery.
For her SPACES Art Writer Residency, Katherine Cooper will conduct a series of interviews with artists in Cleveland to investigate the politics and aesthetics of intimacy in artistic practice. Conversing with artists in Cleveland to arrive at a working definition of "intimacy," Cooper will allow her research to be informed by the artwork itself as well as theoretical texts. Her professional experience as a sex and relationship advice columnist at Playboy Magazine and her year and a half long journey around the globe writing about that experience and asking individuals questions about intimacy in their own lives will also bolster the research-based writing.
