Each year, the Center for Curatorial Studies celebrates the achievements of a leading curator whose lasting contributions have shaped the way we conceive of exhibition-making today. The awardee is selected by an independent panel of leading contemporary art curators, museum directors, and artists. The award reflects CCS Bard’s commitment to recognizing individuals who have defined new thinking, bold vision, and dedicated practice to the field of exhibition practice.
Connie Butler, Chief Curator at the Hammer Museum, will receive the 2020 Audrey Irmas Award for Curatorial Excellence. The award will be presented to Butler by artist Andrea Fraser at a gala dinner, co-chaired by Lonti Ebers and Martin Eisenberg, on April 1st, 2020, in New York City.
