The Story of Art | Art Now: 1950–Today
The Story of Art series focuses on the story of art history, one that is continually being retold as we discover new things and look afresh at the familiar. Join MFA curators on a journey to learn more about our collection, contextualized with other objects from around the world, as we take a grand tour through the story of art.
Art Now: 1950–Today is presented by Senior Curator of Contemporary Art Katherine Pill. Looking specifically at contemporary artworks in the MFA Collection, this talk will examine ways that living artists critically bridge past and present and how that manifests within an encyclopedic context.
Senior Curator of Contemporary Art Katherine Pill, has worked to bring new ideas to diverse audiences. Pill, the first curator at the MFA to focus on Modern and Contemporary art, has curated dynamic and powerful exhibitions at the MFA , including Skyway 20/21: A Contemporary Collaboration (2021), Gio Swaby: Fresh Up (2022) and Borrow and Steal: Appropriation from the Collection (2022-2023).
