Contemporary conceptual artist, curator and double UWM alumna Michelle Grabner returns to INOVA on March 31 to discuss one of the biggest moments of her career so far. It’s three stories tall and it opened on March 8, yet it’s consumed much of Grabner’s last 18 months, drawn her into more than 120 studios nationwide, and is open through May 25. She’ll discuss it all during her talk “Curating the Whitney Biennial 2014,” on Monday, March 31 at 6:30 p.m.
In fall 2012, Grabner was one of a trio of curators hand picked to curate the final biennial in the museum’s current Madison Avenue location, biennial no. 77. She joined Stuart Comer of London’s Tate Modern and Anthony Elms of the Philadelphia Institute of Contemporary Art in the task of seeking, selecting and curating some of the best in contemporary American art. Each curator was given one floor and free rein. Grabner got the fourth floor.
