Meet ArtTable in DC for a curator-led tour of Revolutions: Art from the Hirshhorn Collection, 1860-1960 with Dr. Marina Isgro, Associate Curator of Media and Performance Art at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution. In anticipation of the fiftieth anniversary of the Hirshhorn’s opening on October 4, 2024, Revolutions places the work of 19 contemporary artists in dialogue with that of 117 artists who worked between 1860 and 1960: the century that introduced Modernism and abstraction, and led up to the Hirshhorn’s establishment by Congress in 1966. An audio guide by Katy Hessel—part of her Museums Without Men series—accompanies the exhibition, highlighting the women represented in Revolutions, whose work completes and complicates art historical narratives they were frequently written out of. Revolutions‘ dialogue between living artists—including Torkwase Dyson, Loie Hollowell, and Catherine Opie—and their 19th- and 20th-century counterparts—such as Berenice Abbott, Mary Cassatt, and Alma Thomas—reveals the resonance and relevance of these earlier works in our contemporary culture.
