Jake Waits

Jake Waits is a doctoral student studying modern and contemporary art with a focus on performance, conceptualism(s) and critical theory. He is particularly interested in unofficial art practices from Central and Eastern Europe and how they intersect broadly with state sanctioned cultural production, global politics, and modernism as a plural phenomenon. In 2021, Jake received a BA in Art History from the University of Washington, where his most recent research focused on performance art in 1970s Czechoslovakia. He is a Mellon Fellow in Critical Theory at Northwestern.
