A collection of influential books gifted from the personal libraries of revered arts and cultural figures.
Christian L. Frock is an independent writer and curator based in the Bay Area. Frock’s practice interrogates the intersection of art, daily life and popular culture through a consideration of art in public spaces. Invisible Venue, the curatorial enterprise founded and directed by Frock since 2005, collaborates with artists to present art in unexpected settings. Recent projects include Here and Now, a series of interventions in historic architecture, organized by Mills Art Museum.
Her writing has been featured in Fillip Review, art ltd, Art Practical, SFArts.org, Art&Education, and NPR.org, among others. She was a 2009 fellow in the Arts Writers Workshop organized by AICA/USA and Creative Capital/Warhol Foundation and a 2008 Alternative Exposure Grant recipient awarded by Southern Exposure.
Frock possesses a BA in art and art history from San Jose State University and an MA in curatorial practice from Goldsmiths College, University of London, where she learned, above all else, to value California sunshine.
