Author of seven books, her most recent, Old in Art School: A Memoir of Starting Over (2018), recounts her experiences as an art student at Rutgers University (BFA 2009) and Rhode Island School of Design (MFA, 2011) after retiring as a professor from Princeton University. A National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist, her highly acclaimed book, The History of White People (2010), is a myth-destroying exploration of “whiteness.” Her most recent solo exhibition Freedom from Truth: Self-Portraits of Nell Painter was featured at the Smith Center, Harvard University, 2019.
