Nov. 9, 2018 Curatorial Symposium - celebrating 20 years of the Exhibition Award
On Friday, November 9, 2018 the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation hosted a curatorial symposium at the New Museum in New York to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Emily Hall Tremaine Exhibition Award.
The Exhibition Award was created in 1998 to honor the Tremaine Collection and the artistic vision of distinguished contemporary art collector, Emily Hall Tremaine. The Exhibition Award focuses on fresh and experimental exhibitions that matched the trailblazing spirit of Emily Hall Tremaine, her passion for art, and her support of living artists that inspired, challenged, and brought joy to those around her. The event culminated the year-long celebration of the Exhibition Award that has been explored through commissioned articles in the fresh e-publication, Exhibitions on the Cusp.
Honoring the curators whose Award winning exhibitions have influenced the field of contemporary art, the symposium highlighted innovative curators who push social discourse in contemporary art and whose vision we believe would have inspired Emily Hall Tremaine.
Gean Tremaine, Tremaine Foundation Board Chair and Michelle Knapik, Tremaine Foundation President welcome and share the history of the Foundation's Curatorial Support.
With a lens of engaging the viewer, Aram Moshayedi from the Hammer Museum, shared a recent exhibition, Stories of Almost Everyone.
As a writer and curator, Tempestt Hazel presented how her life experiences influence her writing and curatorial exploration.
The curatorial duo, FICTILIS, presented their recent work on the Museum of Capitalism and experience as independent curators.
Johanna Burton spoke of the history and her work at New Museum, weaving education as a key component of curatorial practice.
After the individual presentations, all the curators took the stage for a final Q&A.
