Chief Curators Trip to NYC

Akron Art Museum's Blog

By: Janice Driesbach, Chief Curator

My tour of New York City galleries began in Chelsea at James Cohan Gallery for a thoughtful look at Fred Tomaselli’s new work. While there, James Cohan shared images from the recent Contemporary Arts Museum Houston opening of the Trenton Doyle Hancock: Skin and Bones, 20 Years of Drawing exhibition that we will be hosting this fall. And I saw Yinka Shonibare’s young bicyclist on a platform, giving his sculpture more presence than when I had previously seen it exhibited directly on the floor.
