Curator Toby Kamps gave an illustrated talk, "All Together Now," at the Ulrich Museum of Art on May 19, 2011.
Kamps earns critical praise for his engaging exhibitions and insightful scholarship. In addition to analyzing such canonical contemporary artists as Bruce Nauman and Ellsworth Kelly, Kamps pursues compelling thematic projects, most recently examining the role of folklore in contemporary art. In his Ulrich talk, he will discuss the historic importance of artists’ collaboratives and the breadth of cooperative production in today’s art world. His presentation set Wichita’s Fisch Haus artist collaborative in context, as their anniversary exhibition appeared at the Ulrich from April 16-August 7, 2011. Kamps' distinguished career has included posts at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; and Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston. He is now curator of modern and contemporary art for The Menil Collection in Houston.
This event was the final presentation in "Buzz-Worthy Art Talks," a new lecture series featuring prominent voices in today's visual culture. "Buzz-Worthy Art Talks" have been generously supported by Don and Lora Barry.
