|Masur hosts Joan Davidow on Aug. 25|
On Tuesday, Aug. 25, Joan Davidow, director/curator of Dallas Contemporary, will present an Open Forum at the Masur Museum.
The format of the evening's program is one that Davidow has found popular at her own institution. She will give a brief overview of the Dallas Contemporary and open the evening for discussion. Taking questions from the audience, she will lead a lively conversation among patrons, collectors, artists, students, and general art enthusiasts. The talk at 7:00 p.m. will be preceded by a reception at 6:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
As director/curator of Dallas Contemporary, Davidow has spent the last eight years bringing cutting-edge emerging contemporary art to Dallas. She leads Dallas Contemporary in a $6 million capital campaign for its future home in a redeveloping area of Dallas. Davidow authored the nationally awarded Art Think education program and has gained recognition for her curatorial work in The Wall Street Journal and Saatchi's Around the World website.
Hailed by Texas Monthly's Michael Ennis as the most imaginative and adventurous museum director working in Texas during her ten-year term as founding director of Arlington Museum of Art, Davidow brings her unflagging support of artists to Dallas. With an MFA in painting at the University of Florida, her career includes a McDermott Curatorial internship at the Dallas Museum of Art and six years as art critic on KERA, public broadcasting for North Texas.
Professional honors include the 2008 Women's Caucus for Art, Lifetime Achievement President's Award and as a graduate of the J. Paul Getty Trust's Museum Management Institute at University of California, Berkeley. Davidow works with the Board on funding and development; manages public relations and marketing; oversees education, staff, and facility. Over 60 national and statewide graphic design awards have rewarded the high quality of catalogues and publications under Davidow's direction.
This program is one of the ways in which the Masur Museum is striving to expand opportunities for area artists. Curators from across the country are brought to Monroe to meet and do studio visits with local artists. The goal of the program is to expand the professional network for local artists, to offer them an opportunity for valuable feedback, and hopefully to open the door for exhibitions in different cities.
The program is supported by a grant from the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council, which consistently supports innovative programs throughout our community.
