Allan Wexler, a self-described "artist in an architect's body," was an early member of the late 1960s "non-architects" or "paper architects," who questioned the perceived divide between art and the design discipline. Wexler has worked in the fields of architecture, design and fine art for forty-five years. He has been represented by the Ronald Feldman Gallery in New York City since 1984 and has exhibited, taught and lectured nationally and internationally since 1972. Wexler currently teaches at Parsons School of Design in New York City. He is a fellow of the American Academy in Rome, winner of a Chrysler Award for Design Innovation and the Henry J. Leir Prize from the Jewish Museum in New York. He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2016.
