The Modern is currently celebrating 10 years in our Tadao Ando building. In conjunction with this celebration, the Anniversary Class has been taking a closer look at the Modern’s collection, focusing on 10 works in 10 days. On the third day of class, artist Kris Pierce guided an in-depth examination of the newly aquired Jenny Holzer piece, Kind of Blue, 2012. Participants researched and selected their own “truisms” and experimented with compostions made only from text.

Just as Lucian Freud: Portraits closed, the Modern’s Education Department wrapped up our final class for The Muse, a studio course where participants enjoyed a hands-on approach to studying the special exhibition. Led by renowned local artist Matthew Bourbon, the class spent time in the galleries discussing the muse and its function in Freud’s practice, as well as its historical role in painting. Matthew also introduced the work of some of Freud’s contemporaries, discussing alternative ways of dealing with the figure on the canvas.

"The level of detail and craft is something that's inscribed within the original design concept. And so when I begin to draw, I know what kind of detailing I want the building to have." -- Tadao Ando

Every time I walk past the Modern's Cornwall Summer Circle, 1995, by Richard Long, it reminds me of Stonehenge.

In the fall of 2009, I began working at the Modern as an intern where I did my blogging from a cozy little nook next to the PR offices. Now I work at the Museum as the online media coordinator and over the past few weeks I have been organizing the “intern nook” into an office.

This past Tuesday, in spite of torrential rain and tornado watches, ninety-four undeterred people gathered to hear from artist, writer, and professor Michael Corris. These faithful folks were rewarded with a sometimes dense, often funny, and consistently thoughtful presentation on issues concerning the use of text in contemporary art.
