Curator Helen Molesworth is well known for (among other things) her highly acclaimed exhibition and corresponding catalogue of 2006 at the Wexner Center for the Arts titled Part Object Part Sculpture. In it, she reconsidered the Minimalist/Post-Minimalist paradigm assumed about post-war contemporary sculpture as assumed by art history. She served previously as contemporary curator at the Whitney Museum and the Baltimore Museum of Art. Molesworth was recently appointed curator of contemporary art at the Harvard University Art Museums, including Harvard’s oldest art museum, The Fogg that opened to the public in 1895. Her visit to VCU will be an opportunity for Molesworth to present her considerations about sculptors, Robert Gober and Ree Morton.
