In Conversation: Lynne Cooke and Nick Mauss

Lynne Cooke, Senior Curator of Special Projects in Modern Art at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, and artist Nick Mauss will use two recent major projects as a backdrop for a conversation about artistic and curatorial practice, and the relationships between vanguard art and other modes of creativity in the history of modernism. Cooke’s traveling exhibition, Outliers and American Vanguard Art examined important intersections of self-taught artists with the mainstream, and Mauss’ Transmissions, a multidisciplinary work at The Whitney Museum of American Art, explored the relationship between modernist ballet and the avant-garde visual arts in New York.
