MASTER PLAN SYMPOSIUM: NEW YORK CITY, APRIL 22, 2017

The Chinati Foundation’s master plan, developed in collaboration with the design and planning firm Sasaki, encompasses the conservation, restoration, maintenance, and long-term development of the museum and its permanent collection and programs in accordance with the principles of artist Donald Judd.

Chinati shared aspects of this process in April.  The master plan symposium took place in two parts, the first on Saturday, April 22 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the second on Saturday, April 29 at the Crowley Theater in Marfa. You may view the second part of the symposium here.


The speakers at the first part of the symposium included:

Theaster Gates (artist and founder of the non-profit Rebuild Foundation), Richard Shiff (Effie Marie Cain Regents Chair in Art and director, Center for the Study of Modernism at the University of Texas at Austin), and Ann Temkin, the Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art.

Both installments of the symposium were moderated by Karen Stein (writer, architectural advisor, and Executive Director of the George Nelson Foundation).
