Last Monday, Sotheby’s Auction House hosted POWArts panel titled Visions For Collecting followed by a preview of the impending Contemporary sale.
On the panel, Nancy Spector, chief curator of the Guggenheim NY. Alison Gingeras, chief curator of the Palazzo Grassi, featuring the private collection of François Pinault. Lynne Cooke, curator at large of the Dia Art Foundation, deputy director of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia.
Three of the Art World’s most brilliant and insightful curators shared their impressions and experiences in shaping the collections and the future of collecting.
They discussed the goals of collecting and filling the “collection gaps” by maintaining the ethos of the collection goals of each of their institutions which vary from private collector, public museum, and a museum borne from a foundation.
POWarts is a great organization that supports the advancement of professional women (and men) in the art world.
