Frazer Ward earned a B.A. and M.A. from the University of Sydney, where he focused on contemporary literature, and a Ph.D. in art history from Cornell University.

Professor Ward teaches courses on the history and theory of modern and contemporary art and architecture. He is the author of No Innocent Bystanders: Performance Art and Audience (2012), and his work appears widely in books, journals and catalogs. His current research interests, alongside his longstanding interest in performance art, include the implications of new imaging technologies, the effects of globalization on the practices and histories of art, and the role of art in contemporary public spheres.

Professor Ward serves on the editorial boards of the University of New England Press series, Interfaces: Studies in Visual Culture, and the electronic journal, InVisible Culture.
