Christian Viveros-Faune is a New York-based art critic and curator, as well as a former art dealer and art fair director. His writing has published in Art in America, Artnews, ArtReview, The Art Newspaper, Frieze and the New York Press (for which he was the weekly art critic between 1998 and 2003). He began writing for the Village Voice in 2007.
Viveros-Fauné was awarded a 2010 Creative Capital/Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant and named inaugural critic-in-residence at the Bronx Museum of the Arts for 2010/2011. A lecturer for the Yale School of Art, in 2011 he co-curated the Dublin Contemporary with artist Jota Castro which included Monica Bonvicini, William Powhida, Mounir Fatmi, Guy Richards Smit, and Ciara Scanlan among others.
In 2008 the Voice dismissed Viveros-Fauné for what it saw as a conflict-of-interest in positions he accepted as a managing director for two art fairs, Volta, in New York, and NEXT, in Chicago. In December 2009, an editor's note announced his return to the weekly.
