Excerpt: Selections from the Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn Collection
This publication accompanies Excerpt, an international exhibition of thirty-nine works of contemporary art by eighteen artists working today in painting, sculpture, photography, video, installation and performance art. It includes an interview with Ms. Rohatyn, who studied Art History at Vassar College (class of 1989) and went on to earn a graduate degree from New York University’s Institute of Fine Art. Ms. Rohatyn’s collection, which includes artist portraits of her and her family, reflects a personal connection to the artists she supports and reveals how her passion for art permeates both her private and professional life. While the work shows evidence of a diverse set of social, political, ethnic, and intergenerational interests, it is bound together in this distinguished collection, which not only illustrates the personal preferences of an experienced collector with a well-trained eye, but also reveals a rare intimacy and deep understanding of the power of the art of our time. Artists include Barry X Ball, Jennifer Cohen, Tamy Ben-Tor, Huma Bhabha, Glenn Brown, Benjamin Edwards, Katy Grannan, David Hammons, Sarah Lucas, Julie Mehretu, Marilyn Minter, Wangechi Mutu, Tim Noble and Sue Webster, Aïda Ruilova, Laurie Simmons, Rudolf Stingel, and Piotr Uklański.
