Gallery Talk with Jennifer Carty - Hope Gangloff Curates Portraiture

Jennifer Carty, Assistant Curator, leads a gallery talk through Hope Gangloff Curates Portraiture.
Hope Gangloff has been invited to mine the museum’s permanent collection and select key historical works to hang alongside her own contemporary paintings in the exhibition Hope Gangloff Curates Portraiture. Using the format of artist as curator, this exhibition creates a conversation between past and present. As a way in which to contextualize contemporary art within the language of art history, this installation not only investigates the traditional genre of portraiture, but also invites viewers to experience the Cantor’s rich, historical collection through the eyes of a celebrated artist working today.
