Best Goodbye Gift

Project 20, Irene Hofmann

This summer Contemporary Museum Executive Director Irene Hofmann accepted a new position as the Phillips director and chief curator of SITE Sante Fe, a nonprofit contemporary arts space whose biennials have deservedly earned international acclaim over the past decade. We couldn’t be happier for her, especially since she leaves the Contemporary after nearly five years of excellent curatorial and organizational work—and helping put together such a grand two-year celebration of the museum’s 20th anniversary. For Project 20 exhibitions, former Contemporary curators, artists, and artist collectives were invited to curate shows, turning one of the museum’s originating ideas—a museum without walls—into a pragmatic maxim that continues the institution’s tradition as a social/creative laboratory to experiment with what a contemporary art museum could and should be.
