Aaron Peck is the author of The Bewilderments of Bernard Willis (2008). Called “an impressive novel, first or otherwise,” it has also been compared to both W. G. Sebald and Roberto Bolaño. His fiction has also appeared in The White Review and Joyland, among other places.
He is also the author of Letters to the Pacific (2010), an art book in collaboration with Adam Harrison and Dominic Osterried, and more recently a critical monograph, Jeff Wall: North & West (2015).
As an art critic, he frequently contributes to Artforum and Canadian Art and has written a number of exhibition catalog essays on artists such as Jeff Wall, Corin Sworn, and Studio for Propositional Cinema. He has given talks at numerous museums, such as the Serpentine Galleries, Dia:Beacon, the Stosheck Collection, Witte de With, Kunstverein Düsseldorf, and the Western Front.
In 2012, Peck was invited to participate in the art exhibition Documenta 13 in Kassel, Germany, as a “writer-in-residence.”
He is currently working on a new novel.
