Feb 10, 2013
Rorimer will survey a series of Minimalist and Conceptual exhibitions mounted in Chicago during a period when she was curator of contemporary art at The Art Institute and a pivotal influence on the trajectory of The Society. She is the author of New Art in the 60s and 70s: Redefining Reality (Thames and Hudson, 2001) and most recently Michael Asher Kunsthalle Bern 1992 (Afterall, 2012). In 1995 she was the co-curator (with Ann Goldstein) of Reconsidering the Object of Art, 1965–1975, organized at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. She has published widely in exhibition catalogues and journals.
