Many Things Placed Here and There: The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection at the Yale University Art Gallery
Over several decades and with a modest income, New York collectors Dorothy and Herbert Vogel amassed a vast and uniquely perceptive collection of contemporary art. In 2008 the Vogels created a program called the Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection: Fifty Works for Fifty States to distribute part of their collection throughout the nation, donating fifty objects to a selected art institution in each state. Many Things Placed Here and There: The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection at the Yale University Art Gallery considers for the first time the Vogels’ generous gift to Connecticut, which was placed in the care of the Yale University Art Gallery and includes work by artists such as Robert Barry, Lois Dodd, Sylvia Plimack Mangold, Lucio Pozzi, and Richard Tuttle. While the Vogel Collection has been highly regarded for its Minimal, Conceptual, and Postminimal objects, the selection given to the Gallery reflects the broader variety of work produced in New York in the second half of the twentieth century and also tells the story of the Vogels’ deeply personal engagement with artists.
