About the Collaborator
Veronica Roberts is Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Blanton Museum at The University of Texas at Austin. Since joining the Blanton in 2013, she has organized nationally-touring exhibitions Nina Katchadourian: Curiouser and Converging Lines: Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt and edited major exhibition catalogues that accompanied these shows. She has also organized projects of recent work with Ed Ruscha, Vincent Valdez, Lenka Clayton, and Donald Moffett and is working on forthcoming exhibitions with Diedrick Brackens and Njideka Akunyili Crosby. She was fortunate to work directly with Ellsworth Kelly and the Blanton team to help realize the artist’s only freestanding building, Austin, which opened on museum grounds in 2018.
Roberts has written extensively on modern and contemporary art, including writing for and editing the publication Charles White: The Gordon Gift to The University of Texas. Her most recent essay, “Sol LeWitt’s Radical Rips” is included in the book, Not To Be Sold For More Than One Hundred Dollars, published by Radius Books. Upcoming projects include a major group exhibition, Day Jobs (2023). Prior to moving to Austin, she served as Director of Research for the Sol LeWitt Wall Drawing Catalogue Raisonné and held curatorial positions at the Museum of Modern Art, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. She received her MA in the history of art and architecture from the University of California at Santa Barbara and her BA in art history from Williams College.
