LIU Post students had the exciting opportunity to meet and talk with managing curator of exhibitions at the Brooklyn Museum, Dr. Sharon Matt Atkins, who came to campus through the generous sponsorship of the Department of Art. At the Steinberg Museum of Art at Hillwood Commons, Dr. Matt Atkins talked about the recent exhibitions that she organized, including the first major US exhibition of Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei, and a site-specific commission by New York artist Swoon. She also shared some professional advice for those aspiring to work in the art world. Dr. Matt Atkins also visited Professor Aileen Wang’s modern art seminar for a talk on curatorial matters and the factors that come into play when the Brooklyn Museum plans its program of exhibitions. Dr. Matt Atkins will be involved in a new accelerated 5-year BA/MA program in art history and museum studies. Watch for its launch next year!
