He is well known as a theoretician of the postmodernism in the visual arts, and for writings on art practices and institutions collected in his book On the Museum's Ruins (MIT Press, 1993). His criticism has been recognized with two Art Critics Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and with the Frank Jewett Mather Award for Distinction on Art Criticism from the College Art Association.
