Matthew Jeffrey Abrams is a writer, critic, and scholar living in New York City. He is the author of “Goodbye, Mister Starfish,” which was published in Conjunctions and nominated for the PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize for Emerging Writers. He holds a Ph.D. from Yale in art history and was formerly the A. Bartlett Giamatti Fellow at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library.

A regular contributor to BOMB MagazineEven MagazineBurlington Magazine, and The Los Angeles Review of Books, Abrams also contributes to exhibition catalogs and artist monographs, like Jeremy Moon (Rizzoli, forthcoming). Additionally, he runs an experimental art-criticism project on Instagram. With more than 11,000 followers, the project blends the instantaneity of social media with the close-looking of art history. He then founded Four On The Floor, a newsletter extension about art in New York.

A trained academic, Abrams has also published scholarship in leading peer-reviewed journals like Word & Image and The Journal of Material Culture. His dissertation, Alternative Modernisms, was supervised by David Joselit, and it was a revisionist history of queer interwar culture. That project spanned from D.H. Lawrence to Marcel Duchamp, and it was formally solicited by Ken Wissoker, editorial director of Duke University Press.
