Kirk Varnedoe: In the Middle at the Modern

Date/Time

Sep 22, 2017 to Feb 11, 2018
10:00 AM until 05:00 PM

Description

Can you have an art exhibition without any artworks? Is a curator an artist? Who or what decides an object’s value? Through the lens of an art historian’s life, Kirk Varnedoe: In the Middle at The Modern challenges the nature of authenticity and the power of museums to define what is “high” and what is “low.” Native to Savannah and a national art legend, Varnedoe helped set in motion these questions as Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art (1988-2001). This biographic exhibition of altered documents, photographs, animations, and ephemera explores how Varnedoe’s journey—from an early art class at Telfair Academy to one of the world’s leading museums—sharpened his values and curatorial insight. Telfair Museums is proud to support “phantom curators” Triple Candie, once dubbed “Manhattan’s only truly alternative space” by The New York Times, in organizing this one-of-a-kind exhibition.
