Panel Discussion

In conjunction with the exhibition Modernisms: Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights from NYU's Abby Weed Grey Collection

[Watch a recording of this program here.]

How do politics, diplomacy, and other worldviews influence both private collecting and exhibition organizing? What factors enter into a curator’s selection of works for a show? How do museums and other institutions help shape a collector’s identity? These questions and more will be considered by speakers Sean Anderson, Associate Curator of Architecture and Design, Museum of Modern Art; Beth Citron, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Rubin Museum of Art; and Saloni Mathur, Professor of Art History, UCLA. Moderated by Lynn Gumpert, Director, Grey Art Gallery, NYU.

Organized by NYU’s Contemporary Asian Art Forum, Institute of Fine Arts; and co-sponsored by South Asia at NYU and the Grey Art Gallery.
