We’re opening the international, cross-disciplinary and thematic exhibition Bohemia: History of an Idea, 1950–2000 on 23 March. Its very first day will end with an exclusive conversation of Kunsthalle Praha’ chief curator Christelle Havranek with the internationally acclaimed curator Russell Ferguson, who organized the project.
Ferguson is a research professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, has written widely about postwar and contemporary art. From 2001, Ferguson was Deputy Director for Exhibitions and Programs, and Chief Curator, at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. From 1991 to 2001, he was at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, first as Editor, then as Associate Curator. He has organized many exhibitions. At the Hammer, these included Perfect Likeness (2015), an examination of contemporary photography, and The Undiscovered Country (2004), a survey of various approaches to representation in painting, as well as solo exhibitions by Larry Johnson (2009), Francis Alÿs (2007), Wolfgang Tillmans (2006), Patty Chang (2005), and Christian Marclay (2003).
