Anna Lovatt is an assistant professor of modern and contemporary art history at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Her research focuses on art of the 1960s and 1970s, with an emphasis on drawing in the context of Postminimal and Conceptual art. She has written extensively on the work of artists including Rosemarie Castoro, Sol LeWitt, Agnes Martin, Dorothea Rockburne, Anne Truitt, and Ruth Vollmer. In 2013–14 she organized the exhibition Michelle Stuart: Drawn from Nature, which traveled to the Djanogly Art Gallery, Nottingham, England; Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill, New York; and Santa Barbara Museum of Art, California. A catalogue published in 2013 by Hatje Cantz accompanied the exhibition. Lovatt’s second book, Drawing Degree Zero: The Line from Minimal to Conceptual Art, was published by Penn State University Press in 2019.
