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.
2013 Contemporary Art Symposium
In 2013, The Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation convened former recipients of its Exhibition Award (given since 1998 to support the work of innovative curators) and other experts for a facilitated conversation on the impact of experimentation and customization on the field.
The discussion triggered consideration of how new ways of fostering connections and relationships between artists, audiences, art organizations, and communities are reinvigorating and challenging curatorial practice.
