About William Powhida

View Profile »

William Powhida (American, b. 1976) is an artist and critic living and working in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. For several years Powhida worked as an art critic for the Brooklyn Rail art and culture journal while developing his own artistic practice. The artist’s work, reflecting his critical background, displays a concentrated fascination with the politics of access and the powers that control the assignment of value in the artworld. Projecting his verbal commentary though an alter-ego, also named William Powhida, the artist satirizes the notions of individual genius and the art world’s relation to wealth and class.
