Introducing Sophie Kovel


In her debut appearance on The Review Panel at Brooklyn Public Library this evening (June 4), art critic, translator, and artist Sophie Kovel joins two veterans of the series, Karen E. Jones, who has appeared already twice plus once on the Review Panel Philadelphia, and Christian Viveros-Fauné, who has appeared six times, plus Philly. For those of a statistical bent, this is the seventh Whitney Biennial to be discussed at The Review Panel.

With a BA from Columbia, Sophie, who lives in Harlem, has taken part in group exhibitions since 2011, most recently at Trestle Projects, Brooklyn, where she is currently an artist in residence. A frequent contributor to Artforum, The Brooklyn Rail, and other publications, Kovel also served last fall as a research assistant at the Museum of Modern Art where she worked on the 2019 garden re-installation and the Spring 2020 Donald Judd retrospective.
