'Collecting and Sharing: Trevor Fairbrother, John T. Kirk and the Hood Museum of Art'

When: Aug. 22-Dec. 6 2015

Since the mid-1970s, Trevor Fairbrother and John T. Kirk have worked together as collectors, and they have maintained a relationship with Dartmouth’s Hood Museum of Art for nearly as long. This exhibition showcases the breadth of the Fairbrother-Kirk acquisitions, featuring early American decorative art (such as chairs and vases) by unknown makers, as well as a dizzying roster of blue-chip artists that includes Bernd and Hilla Becher, Joseph Beuys, Mike Kelley, Sol LeWitt, Catherine Opie, Elizabeth Peyton and Andy Warhol. Presumably to aid digestability, the approximately 140 works have been arranged in seven categories: Histories, Wonders, Goods, Marks, Males, Geometries and Surfaces.
