Fanny Singer is a writer, curator, and passionate home cook based in London. While her previous publications predominantly span art history and art criticism (she holds a PhD from University Cambridge on British Pop Art), she has most recently illustrated and co-authored, together with Alice Waters, the cookbook, My Pantry (Pam Krauss Books, 2015). An essay on the British Pop artist Richard Hamilton, drawn from her PhD research, was published in the Tate exhibition catalogue for a 2013 retrospective of Hamilton’s work. An essay titled “Open Kitchen: Tracing the History of the Hearth in the Home,” will be published in the forthcoming volume Food and Architecture (Ed. Samantha L. Martin-McAuliffe, Bloomsbury, 2016).
In 2008–09, Fanny worked as the Bay Area restaurant critic for Gourmet, and, since 2015, has written on arts and culture for the Wall Street Journal Magazine where she is a Contributing Editor. She has also written for a number of other arts, design and fashion publications including Art Papers, POP, and The Burlington Magazine. She recently penned a Mother’s Day piece for Lucky Peach and made several illustrations for a feature in Cherry Bombe, for which she drew on her studio art training at Yale University.
