Kluger is one of the leaders of New York’s growing Anti-Art movement. He adjudicated the Desperate Times group art show at the Susan Eley gallery in early January.

His illustrated flash fiction, Desperate Times Vol I and II, is available on Amazon.

A veteran television writer and producer (Fox, CNN, E!), Kluger owns and operates a PR firm
