This year’s Curatorial Conversations Series from the Ralph T. Coe Center for the Arts is in conjunction with the exhibition Connoisseurship and Good Pie: Ted Coe and Collecting Native Art at the Wheelwright Museum. The series includes a number of conversational walk-throughs with Bruce Bernstein, curator and executive director of the Ralph T. Coe Center for the Arts, and a variety of individuals involved in the field ranging from artists/curators/dealers/appraisers, etc.
For each event, both visitors and participants were brought together to experience a guided tour of Connoisseurship and Good Pie: Ted Coe and Collecting Native Art, while engaging in compelling dialogue around the nature of collecting and curation. Each walk-through resulted in an amazing and compelling conversation—a series not to be missed. Please join the experience by watching the videos below:
