Wiggs_helenmolesworth3_living.jpgIf you know anything at all about contemporary art, you know that Hans Ulrich Obrist is everywhere. He's the most influential curator in the world, and he's famous for collaborating - in the form of interviews, books, exhibitions, and all manner of other projects - with living artists.
Helen Molesworth is a more traditional - but no less dynamic and effective - kind of contemporary art curator. She works mostly within the parameters of a given institution (she's chief curator at Boston's Institute of Contemporary Art). She does less flitting about, more deep digging, and she's especially well known for her intelligent themed shows.
But she and Obrist (who is associated with the Serpentine Gallery in London) have at least one thing in common: They've both been honored with the 2011 Award for Curatorial Excellence by the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College.
Congratulations to both.
