An Article on Cecily Brown, Curated by Claire Gilman

Last summer, I had the pleasure of working at The Drawing Center under Chief Curator, Claire Gilman for curatorial work, and Molly Gross for museum communications. While there, I was lucky enough to get glimpses of the plans for the, then, upcoming exhibition Cecily Brown: Rehearsal.  Fast forward months later, IFA Contemporary accepted my article reviewing this remarkable exhibition. This was a particularly exciting opportunity not simply because I worked for Claire from whom I learned so much, and that I absolutely adore Cecily’s practice, but also because this was a show on a woman artist, curated by a woman. In addition to it all, Claire kindly accepted to speak with me on the phone and answer the numerous questions I showered her with. Here is the link to the original article.
