She is the co-editor of the book Critical Landscapes: Contemporary Art and the Politics of Land Use, which is currently under review for publication. Dr. Swenson’s interests and critical writing concentrate on the legacies of minimal and conceptual art, the work of Eva Hesse, Sol LeWitt, and land-based practices in contemporary art.

Read an article from Art in America, entitled Reflections On The Electric Mirror: New Feminist Video in which Swenson discusses the workings of five feminist video artists.

The Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies summer session is an eight-week long institute featuring graduate seminars, critique sessions, visiting artist lectures, and intensive periods of studio practice.
