Contemporary Interpretations of Beauty in the Museum

2011, The State Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg Russia

co-curated with Igor Lebedev

A joint exhibition of photography from Parsons The New School for Design and The State Hermitage Museum. Though historically relevant, beauty has been
frequently challenged as a valid aesthetic in contemporary art. “Beauty”, as it applies to this exhibition, is not simply an object to be desired, but a tool that is used to question, inform, and engage the audience in, larger conceptual conversations.
