Michael Auping

Michael Auping, the Museum’s chief curator, discusses the Tadao Ando–designed gallery spaces of the Modern from a behind-the-scenes curatorial viewpoint in Installing the Modern. For this enlightening presentation, Auping shares his choices for pairing certain key works from the collection with different spaces in the museum; specifically Anselm Kiefer’s Book with Wings, Martin Puryear’s Ladder for Booker T. Washington, Richard Serra’s Vortex, Carl Andre’s Slit, and the new acquisition and placement of Roxy Paine’s stainless steel trees, Conjoined. It is always rewarding to hear from Auping, as he has been a favorite of the Tuesday Evenings series throughout the life of this program, bringing his knowledge, vast experience, and quick wit to the various subjects he has presented over the years. This is sure to be another popular event, so arrive early to claim a seat.
