He has had solo exhibitions at the Saint Louis Art Museum, Art Institute of Chicago; Orange County Museum of Art; Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh, PA; Rockford Art Museum; and many private galleries and alternative spaces. Spector’s writing, both critical and experimental, has appeared in various journals and reviews since the 1970s, including Artforum, Art in America, Art Issues, Bridge, Café Solo, POSIT, River Styx and WhiteWalls. Spector holds the BA in studio art from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale and the MFA from the University of Chicago.
