Yale students celebrate the reopening of the Yale University Art Gallery’s main building, designed in 1953 by American architect Louis Kahn (1901-1974) and restored in 2004-6, with this special exhibition of works from the collection. Responding to Kahn: A Sculptural Conversation highlights the restored building and the relationship between modern art and architecture, with particular emphasis on postwar sculpture. The curatorial team of students, who represent a range of disciplines, organized all aspects of the exhibition, from the selection of objects to the installation design, interpretive materials, and accompanying catalogue.
Exhibition and publication organized by Yale students under the direction of Pamela Franks, Curator of Academic Initiatives, Yale University Art Gallery. Made possible by the Jane and Gerald Katcher Fund for Education, The Nolen-Bradley Family Fund, and Mr. and Mrs. Theodore P. Shen, B.A. 1966.
