Karen Wilkin, Curator

Corwin interviews the delightfully unshakeable curator and critic about the relevance of the curator, connoisseurship, current trends, her fondness for Anthony Caro, early life, career and travels, and new projects on Ukrainian-born, American Modernist and organizer John Graham, Hans Hoffman works on paper, and Alabama-born, self-taught artist Thornton Dial.

Karen Wilkin is an art historian, curator, and critic, educated at the High School of Music and Art, Barnard College, and Columbia University and, at the time of this recording, a faculty member at the New York Studio School. She was the co-curator (with William C. Agee and Irving Sandler) of the 2012 exhibition American Vanguards at the Neuberger Museum. Wilkin has organized numerous exhibitions internationally and written monographs on David Smith, Helen Frankenthaler, Anthony Caro, Kenneth Noland, Stuart Davis, Giorgio Morandi, and George Braque, and is the co-author, with Clifford Ross, of The World of Edward Gorey. She contributes regularly to The New Criterion, Partisan Review, Hudson Review, and Wall Street Journal.
