John Bisbee lead a tour at the MFA speaking about how he views art, and comments on works in the collection of the new Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art.  He spoke about how he liked work that showed the “obsessiveness of the hand” and used the term “High craft, Low tech.” This phrase is evident in Louise Nevelson’s work (as seen behind Bisbee), but also Mona Hatoums’ 2002 piece “Grater Divide”.
Afterwards, Christina Godfrey, Niho Kozuru and I enjoyed a nice lunch with the Assistant Curator of contemporary art, Al Miner at the New American Cafe and learned about how works get acquired for the contemporary wing.
