Curator's Pick


Not So Far After All

One of my pet peeves is when people use the Studio Museum’s uptown location as a reason for not visiting the Museum very often and missing out on our great programs. So, I’m pretty embarrassed to admit that I use the same excuse for why I don’t go to the Bronx Museum all that often. Although I currently live in Brooklyn, I grew up in the Bronx, so there’s really no excuse for me not to visit my home borough more often. On Friday evening, I made the (quick) 30-minute train ride from the Studio Museum to the Bronx Museum for a panel discussion about Stargazers: Elizabeth Catlett in Conversation with 21 Contemporary Artists.

    I am not on Facebook. I don’t Tweet.* In fact, my lack of presence in the cyber world is so striking that it might be perceived that—as a curator—I privilege the real experience. While I don’t think I will ever get over the profound experience of being in the physical presence of a work of art, I welcome the occasion of our beautiful, newly redesigned website to share some of my ideas about art and inspiration with our online audience.
