Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Modern Art, Harvard University

Daimler Fellow - Class of Fall 2009


Benjamin Buchloh has been the Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Modern Art at Harvard University since 2006. He is internationally recognized today as one of the most important scholars of post-1945 art. An expert in the largely isolated artistic cultures of American and European modernism, Buchloh’s work has broadened the canonical history of modern art beyond an American perspective. He was awarded the Golden Lion Award for Contemporary Art History and Criticism at the Venice Biennale in 2007 and is the recipient of numerous other grants, including Getty, CASVA, and Lehman Foundation fellowships. He is also an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
