About Amei Wallach
Amei Wallach is an art critic, commentator, and filmmaker.

She was on-air arts commentator for the PBS MacNeil/Lehrer Newshour and chief art critic for New York Newsday. In 1987, she traveled to the Soviet Union to produce a five-part series on the effects of Perestroika there, where she met the circle of outsider Moscow Conceptualists, like Ilya Kabakov, who were forbidden to show. Her continuing interest in Soviet era art led to the book, ‘Ilya Kabakov: The Man Who Never Threw Anything Away ‘(Abrams, 1995) and a feature-length documentary on the subject. She was president of AICA/USA between 2000 and 2005, and is founding program director of The Art Writing Workshop, a partnership between the International Art Critics Association (AICA/USA) and the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program.
