With the end of the semester approaching, we’d like to highlight a few recent faculty news items:
Yesterday, the Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC) announced its annual Awards for Excellence in curatorial work, and we were thrilled to see the results: Along with Rebecca Rabinow, Emily Braun received Best Catalog / Publication produced by a museum with an annual operating budget over $20 million for Cubism: The Leonard A. Lauder Collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Vivien Greene, Senior Curator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, also received a first place award for her exhibition Italian Futurism, 1909-1944: Reconstructing the Universe.
In other news, Yale University Press recently released The Modern Architecture Symposia, 1962-1966: A Critical Edition, edited by Professor Emerita Rosemarie Haag Bletter and Joan Ockman. Bletter also published “Fragments of Utopia: Paul Scheerbart and Bruno Taut” in Glass! Love!! Perpetual Motion!!! – A Paul Scheerbart Reader (University of Chicago Press) 2014.
Finally, the Winter 2014 issue of Art Journal featuring Anna Chave’s article “Grave Matters: Positioning Carl Andre at Career’s End” is now available in print. We hope to see a PDF on Professor Chave’s website soon!
