Robert Bordo is an associate professor of art at The Cooper Union, New York, where he leads the Painting program. In 2003 he was a visiting critic for the MFA program at Yale University and the Glasgow School of Art as well as a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome. In 2007 he was awarded a Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation Grant.

In his most recent works Bordo continues to play with subject matter, both reducing and expanding upon the subjective language of painting. His new works highlight the ambiguity of content through an alternately humorous and self-conscious subterfuge.

Bordo is represented by Alexander and Bonin, New York, where he has been the subject of four one-person shows since 1999. He has also exhibited with Galerie René Blouin, Montreal and Rubicon Gallery, Dublin. Bordo has collaborated with the choreographer Mark Morris in designing sets and costumes for several productions, including Henry Purcell's opera Dido and Aeneas. He has been a fellow at the MacDowell Colony and a recipient of Canada Council Art Grants and a grant from the Tesuque Foundation.
