look at preparing for
Mel Chin: ReMatch
Saturday, February 22, 10am
Mel Chin, CALL artist
Rose Candela Moore, CALL Legacy Specialist and assistant to Mel Chin
Miranda Lash, curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, NOMA
Panel moderated by Carolyn Somers, Executive Director of the Joan Mitchell Foundation
In 2009 Miranda Lash, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the New Orleans Museum of Art, approached Carolyn Somers, Director of the Joan Mitchell Foundation, in regards to working with Mel Chin through the Foundation’s Creating a Living Legacy (CALL) program, in preparation for Mel Chin: Rematch, a forty-year retrospective of Mel Chin’s career.
The CALL program works with artists to help them organize and document their artwork and archival materials, making it possible for curators to access images and information that might otherwise be unavailable to them.
Creating an extensive archive of Mel Chin’s legacy, in his own voice, made it possible for the New Orleans Museum of Art to organize the most expansive presentation of his work to date. This panel brings together artist, Mel Chin, NOMA curator, Miranda Lash, Chin’s assistant, Rose Candela Moore and Carolyn Somers to discuss getting in shape for Rematch.
