Kenneth Silver, Chaos and Classicism



The curator of the Guggenheim Museum's 2010 blockbuster Chaos and Classicism (through January 9, 2011) stops by the Clocktower to tell the story of the exhibition. It's a match made in heaven because Will is fascinated by fascism and it's manipulation of various media for control purposes, and that's pretty much what Chaos and Classicism is about. Ken talks serious curation, setting the parameters of the show, gathering the art together; what pieces to ask for, which ones to leave alone: the exhibition features work by Matisse, Picasso, and Leger among others. Apparently, all listeners should run out and watch Peter Cohen.
