Tim Griffin is a poet and writer, and served as editor-in-chief of Artforum International from 2003–10. Like Frank O’Hara and John Ashbery, Griffin has leveraged this midpoint between creative writing and critical dialogue to benefit both gestures. His poetry has recently appeared in such publication as Fence and The Hat; his poem “Stereo in July” was exhibited at the gallery White Columns; and he was included in the collection Free Radicals: American Poets Before Their First Book (2004). His multimedia plays in verse (Fingerprints and The Various Theories of Rain) have been performed in New York at P.S.122 and London at the Cochrane Theater.
