  agnieszka taborska

Agnieszka Taborska (b. 1961) is a writer and art historian specializing in French Surrealism. She divides her time between Warsaw, Poland, and Providence, USA, where she teaches art history and literature at the Rhode Island School of Design. Having published over twenty books in Polish, her work has been translated into English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, and Korean. Among her titles are a collection of essays Conspirators of Imagination: Surrealism, a biography The Archipelagos of Roland Topor, a travel book American Crumbs; the short-story collections The Whale, or Objective Chance and Not as in Paradise, the literary mystifications, The Dreaming Life of Leonora de la Cruz and The Unfinished Life of Phoebe Hicks (both with collage illustrations by American artist Selena Kimball), and a memoir A Woman Awaiting, The Pandemic from a Garret. She received the 2014 Best Polish Children’s Book Award for The Black Imp and Other Sprites and has had her work adapted for the stage and screen (award-winning animated films). Taborska has also translated into Polish, such as novels by Spalding Gray, Roland Topor, Gisèle Prassinos, and Philippe Soupault. She has curated exhibitions of Surrealist art in France and Poland, has written scripts for plays and documentary films related to Surrealism, and her two literary collaborations with Selena Kimball are experiments that reimagine Surrealism for the postmodern era.
