Annie Cohen Solal on the Life of Leo Castelli

January 21, 2011

Annie Cohen-Solal, Professeur des Universités at the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique)-Paris and Research Fellow at Tisch School of the Arts, New York University, will discuss Leo Castelli’s role in international art fairs where museums bought art and helped build the international reputations of artists. Leo Castelli reinvented the function of the gallerist by creating a functional link between market and museum, by connecting his gallery to the most influential museum directors, by creating a network of satellite galleries in the US and in the world.

This event is cosponsored by The International Museum Institute of the USC Fisher Museum of Art and The Contemporary Project, an initiative to create new dialogues between the academic community and the art world.
