Tyler Green likes the way we do it

April 18, 2008

From Modern Art Notes:

“I admire the way the Art Institute of Chicago uses their ‘Focus’ program. Last year, while the AIC was in the midst of a series of exhibitions and other programs focusing on the Silk Road, the museum presented the work of Gulnara Kasmalieva and Muratbek Djumaliev, two artists whose work fits perfectly into the museum’s focus on the Silk Road. (The artists show with Ed Winkleman. Ed is a blogger and a friend.)

I also liked what the AIC did with its Jana Gunstheimer ‘Focus’ show: It provided American audiences with the artist’s first American exhibition. (That’s another way in which these shows can transcend the typical: In best-case scenarios, institutions give their curators the freedom to discover.) Gunstheimer’s show also specifically addressed Chicago. Both exhibitions were curated by the AIC’s Lisa Dorin. “
