IN CONVERSATION: Curators Dean Daderko and Veronica Roberts

Join CAMH Curator Dean Daderko and Veronica Roberts, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Blanton Museum of Art at The University of Texas at Austin, for a conversation about artists who inspire and influence each other through artistic and personal correspondence.

About the Discussion

A Traveling Show features materials chosen from the seven-year mailing project Matt Keegan and Kay Rosen have engaged in, and extends it with selected works by each artist. Roberts’ recent exhibition at the Blanton Museum of Art, Converging Lines: Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt (2014), explored Hesse and Lewitt’s remarkable friendship and the ways these artists spurred each other on to significant new discoveries. The curators’ dialogue will consider the artistic conversations addressed in these exhibitions as well as other artists’ correspondence projects.

About Veronica Roberts
Veronica Roberts is Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Blanton Museum in Austin. In 2014, she curated Converging Lines: Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt, the first show to examine the way the artists’ close friendship influenced their art and lives. It included a gallery filled with the artists’ correspondence and a remarkable letter that LeWitt wrote to Hesse. Roberts loves handwritten notes herself. Inspired by Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt’s exchanges, Roberts wrote a postcard to her grandmother in California every day for one year.

Roberts is currently preparing Nina Katchadourian: Curiouser, a mid-career survey of the Brooklyn artist opening at the Blanton in March 2017. It will include a major installation by the artist called Paranormal Postcards, which may or may not include a postcard of an animatronic Lyndon Baines Johnson.
