WALTER ROBINSON RETROSPECTIVE WITH JEFFREY DEITCH
If you go back through the pages of our journal you will see that we at the AOT Project are very fond of Walter and his work. Walter Robinson has also been a supporter of AOT for some time and for that, we wish to express our gratitude. Robinson is a true man of Arts & Letters.
The recognition is timely and well deserved. His contributions to the New York art scene and the art world, period, are invaluable. His decades of archival presence appear in many forms, from the written word to film and of course, painting. All standing the test of time. He is a painter and an artist in the truest sense. Toying with the viewers’ desires, Robinson’s work continues to lure you in and keep your attention with a subtle introspective play. He has participated in group and solo shows from Greenpoint to the Lower and Upper East Side and all stops in between, which we think is his authentic expression of appreciation for the art world and its community.
Robinson was born in Wilmington, Delaware in 1950 and grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He moved to New York in 1968 to attend Columbia University, where he studied art history and psychology. After he graduated, in 1972, Robinson enrolled in the Whitney Independent Study Program, and during the 1980s, he was a member of CoLab. Robinson was a contributing editor at Art in America from 1978 to 1997, a cofounder (with Edit DeAk) of Art-Rite magazine in the 1970s, and the art editor ofThe East Village Eye through the 1980s. Later, he was the correspondent for “Art Gallery Beat” in the late 1990s and is the author of Instant Art History (Ballantine, 1994). He has exhibited his art at the New Museum and the Drawing Center in New York, among numerous other galleries, art fairs, and institutions. Robinson writes a regular column for the Artspace Magazine.
