Curator’s Pages

An ongoing interest in architecture was reflected in volume seven by articles on new museums in the Southeast, including Richard Meier’s freshly completed building for Atlanta’s High Museum of Art and projected new homes for the Georgia Museum of Art and North Carolina Museum of Art, as well as by an interview with Michael Graves-who was then designing Emory University’s new museum of art and archaeology, today’s Michael C. Carlos Museum-on the topic of regional universals. While an interview with John Baldessari reflected the magazine’s interest in conceptually oriented art, a range of other styles and media were covered, including a major section on crafts in the Southeast and a survey of Lucinda Bunnen’s gift of a major photography collection to the High Museum. A special issue funded by LINE Inc. allowed five curators to produce an experimental mixture of essays and artists’ pages, including Michael Siede’s cover (see photo). A story on music legend Bruce Hampton rounded out the year’s eclectic mix.
