I was honored to be asked to compose a post for the Museum of the City of New York's blog this past fall, and to have a chance to mine our collection for material relating to our Mac Conner exhibition, which was on view from September 10, 2014 through February 1, 2015. What a pleasure to work on that show, and to peruse our troves of Stanley Kubrick photographs (explore them here). I'm feeling...

But for all that I managed a wonderful (and very full!) day.

Many of the displayed works derive from the Whitney's own collection, a bequest of Hopper's widow (who is also...

Echo, 1997. Courtesy NYT. I really want to see this exhibition by a sculptor whose work I don't like. That's what I told my friend a few weeks ago before heading to the Ken Price retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
