The Hudson River Museum is the largest cultural institution in Westchester County and a multidisciplinary complex that draws its identity from its site on the banks of the Hudson River, seeking to broaden the cultural horizons of all its visitors. The Museum collections focus on 19th-century through contemporary American Art; Glenview, an 1876 house on the National Register of Historic Places; Hudson Riverama, an environmental teaching gallery; a state-of-the-art, 120-seat planetarium, and a 400-seat outdoor amphitheater. It presents exhibitions, programs, teaching initiatives, research, collection, preservation, and conservation – a wide range of activities that interpret its collections, interests and communities.

Jordan Matter Photography is known for his portraiture and for creating nontraditional landscapes. This exuberant work, “Vista,” is part of his portrait series “Dancers Among Us,” which Matter shot throughout different regions of the United States as a means of subverting the typical way dancers appear in photographs.

“Vista,” which was shot against the backdrop of the Hudson River and the Palisades, is now on view at the HRM as part of our exhibition, “Landscape Art and Virtual Travel: Highlights From the Collections of the HRM and Art Bridges.”

For #MuseumEdMonday, discover more about Matter’s approach to his work through one of our Art Projects, “On the Edge: Exploring the Work of Jordan Matter.” Then learn how to create your own tableau vivant, or living landscape!

“I personally don’t want the next generation to look at this time and only see trauma, the things that will not empower them necessarily, but to see those images and juxtapose the celebratory history that we’ve been able to accomplish.”

Check out artist Derrick Adams's excellent interview with Phyllis Hollis, host of the Cerebral Women podcast. Then come see the #Blackradicaljoy in his work for yourself in his installation, “We Came to Party and Plan.”

You can also appreciate the artist's emphasis on the often unseen history of #Black #leisure in his picks from the #HRMCollections in “Collection Spotlight: Derrick Adams Selects.” Both exhibitions are on view through October 18.

09/16/2020

Our final question on #AskaCurator Day for Laura Vookles, Chair of the HRM's Curatorial Department, comes from Raissa Fitzgerald. She asks: "When you have an idea for an exhibit, how do you find out what other museums have in their collections to borrow from? Do you have access to other museum’s databases? Where else would you find objects to display as part of an exhibition?"

Laura Vookles: "Finding art for an exhibition is something that has changed greatly for the better in the age of the internet, when a number of museums, like Crystal Bridges and the @ArtBridgesFoundation, have their collection databases searchable online. For example, discovering Cynthia Daignault’s 'Light Atlas' in Art Bridges’ collection was the inspiration for our current exhibition, 'Landscape Art and Virtual Travel: Highlights From the Collections of the HRM and Art Bridges.'

Or some museums may have highlights on a Google Arts & Culture page, as the Hudson River Museum does. There is also a national database of American art called SIRIS: the @Smithsonian Institution Research Information System. SIRIS was started in the 1970s from questionnaires sent out to museums and galleries all over the country. SIRIS is now online and can be very useful in directing curators where to inquire for more information and images for objects that come up in a search.

Then there is still the more old-fashioned method of book research. Possible artwork may have been illustrated in museum catalogs or other publications. Some of these materials may be viewable online. Then we follow those leads. Other kinds of websites are also useful: artists’ estates, sale records, and more. Sometimes networking with scholars who have worked on a subject will help unearth possibilities. The modern enhances, rather than replaces our older methods."

Our first question for Laura Vookles, Chair of the Curatorial Department at the HRM for #AskaCurator Day is: "What is the inspiration for an exhibition? How do you go about deciding on what exhibition will ultimately be on view?" -Cathy Dattilo

"The many possible answers to this question are part of what make museum curating so rewarding and endlessly fascinating. Museums offer already pre-organized exhibitions all the time, so I’m limiting the answer by focusing on ones we organize ourselves. We may fall in love with an artist’s work—either from having a piece in our collection and wanting to give it more context, or from visiting other museums, or following developments in the art world, in publications, in online sources, and by attending art fairs. All of the above may also be said of a particular theme we want to pursue because it relates to something in our collection or a subject very relevant to our mission.

Ideas related to all these things may also come from our colleagues in other departments, including the museum director. We research an idea to create a proposal, which we can discuss with our colleagues, and consider issues such as timing, relevance (ranging from contemporary issues to scholarship in the field), the overall schedule, expected costs and possibilities of funding, and the balance of other types of exhibitions coming up in the schedule. In my experience, the range of time between idea to installation can be as many as ten years and as little as one.

Our latest exhibition, 'Women to the Fore,' which opens Friday, September 18, began with a desire to see more women artists in the collection on display and expanded to include several contemporary artists we had been wanting to exhibit at the museum and others we discovered along our research journey."

Mark your calendars for "Women to the Fore," which gives voice and space to more than 40 female-identifying artists, spanning 150 years.

Opening Friday, September 18, this exhibition—drawn largely from the Museum’s permanent collection as well as loans from regional artists, galleries, and collectors—focuses on the rich diversity and range of expression in a group of artists working in paintings and drawings, prints and photographs, collage and sculpture. The installation will gather and compare works from different eras and media and will include interpretation that stems from the artists’ own words.

Featured artists include Berenice Abbott, Seongmin Ahn, Denise Allen, Vinnie Bagwell, Hannelore Baron, Shanequa Benitez, Isabel Bishop, Harriet Blackstone, The Bolt Diaries, Mary Cassatt, Judy Chicago, Rose Clark, Amaryllis DeJesus Moleski, @Josephine Douet, Camille Eskell, Audrey Flack, Elizabeth Flint Wade, Mary Frank, Mary Frey, Harriet Whitney Frishmuth, Judy Giera, Nancy Graves, Susan Hall, Susan Leopold, Evelyn Longman, Marisol, Ann McCoy, Barbara Morgan, Louise Nevelson, Georgia O'Keeffe, Merle Perlmutter, Ellen Robbins, Ola Rondiak Art , Helen Searle, Tuesday Smillie, Julia Santos Solomon , Jessica Spence, Lilly Martin Spencer, Yvonne Thomas, Bessie Potter Vonnoh, Anna Walinska, and Susan Wides.

The Museum also commissioned Yonkers-based artists Nancy Mendez, Patricia Santos, and Katori Walker to paint a collaborative mural inspired by their own public art practice and expression of identity.

"Women to the Fore" will be on view at the HRM from Friday, September 18, 2020–January 3, 2021. We're open Thursday–Sunday, 12-5pm, with Free Evening Hours on Saturday, September 19, 5-7pm. Advanced tickets encouraged.
