Meeting Place Reviewers

Charles Dee Mitchell

Freelance Writer, Independent Curator, Private Collector
Dallas, TX, USA
Charles Dee Mitchell has written on contemporary art for Art in America, Artforum, the Dallas Morning News, as well as contributing essays to exhibitions at museums, non-profit spaces, and commercial galleries. As a curator he has worked with commercial spaces, arts-run galleries and universities. He has curated two exhibitions of war photography. XXI: Conflict in a New Century, the Oak Cliff Cultural Center, Dallas, Texas (2011), was composed mostly from his own collection. The Engines of War, co-curated with Cynthia Mulcahy, was at the Gasser Grunert Gallery in NYC (2013). He has done several projects with the Video Association of Dallas.

Mitchell is mainly interested in documentary work, using that term in the broadest possible sense. He is also interested in photographers who are using the camera in a wider discourse of contemporary art. He is not interested in fashion or nudes.

After thirty years in the book business, working with both US and international publishers, he can suggest how to shape a body of work for publication. He is also looking at work for new curatorial projects.
