The Ralph T. Coe Foundation for the Arts will continue its Curatorial Conversation Series at the Wheelwright Museum in Santa Fe.
This series of public conversations provides guided tours and discussions through the exhibition guided by the Coe Foundation’s curator and executive director, Bruce Bernstein, and a sequence of local artists and scholars.
The talks give an intimate look into the curatorial process and objects of “Connoisseurship and Good Pie: Ted Coe and Collecting Native Art” which takes viewers from a point of origin of one passionate and well-versed man to open up questions regarding relationships among artists, collectors, curators, viewers, and institutions. Each guest will bring personal insights into the production, collecting and marketing of Native Arts.
The first conversation in the series is with artist Dallin Maybee, on Wednesday, Feb. 3.
Maybee (Northern Arapaho/Seneca) has been chief operating officer of the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts since 2014 and is an award-winning and accomplished beadworker and international performer and lecturer.
