Grabner's varied interests beyond her studio practice-in writing, curating, and teaching-led the Whitney Museum of American Art to name her co-curator of its 2014 biennial with Anthony Elms and Stuart Comer. Her writing has been published in Artforum, Modern Painters, Frieze, Art Press, and Art-Agenda, among others.
