Raised abroad, learning and forgetting languages but making and keeping friends, Charlotte Kent then moved to NYC, which has been her on-and-off home ever since. She was Interim Director of the Andreeva Portrait Academy in Santa Fe, NM, before becoming the Managing Editor and Education Director for Ethis Communications, a publishing company focused on eyecare in New York City. This unusual background in science and academic art provoked questions on the valuation of art that led to her initial inquiry on why some forms of writing, and not others, substantiate the field of art history, and continues in her interest on the current and historical intersection of art and technology.
She is currently the Assistant Professor of Visual Culture at Montclair State University. She writes for art and general audience outlets and speaks internationally. After a decade in education, she published a writing textbook, Writing For College and Beyond (Peter Lang, 2019). While on the Board of Governors for the National Arts Club, she launched the Artist Fellowship and podcast NAC Chat. She is an Editor at Large for Brooklyn Rail and co-editor of Contemporary Absurdities, Existential Crises, and Visual Art, forthcoming.
