Niko Vicario is a writer, a curator, and a PhD student in the History, Theory, and Criticism of Architecture and Art program at MIT. Most recently, he co-edited (with Ute Meta Bauer) Engaged: 20 Years of the MIT Visual Arts Program, a collection of moving image works and documentation of other works interrogating the public sphere; he also participated in the research project and exhibition Living Modern (with Heidrun Holzfeind and Damon Rich), curated by Laura Barlow, at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (where he was Curatorial Fellow in 2008-2009 and a graduate student in 2006-2008). His most recent research has explored the intersections and exchanges between art and architecture through the lens of particular practices. He is usually based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Research at Program will primarily investigate "the corporate" in recent and less recent artistic and architectural practice (particularly under the aegis of neoliberalism).
