Apparently, the Museum of Modern Art is going to stick to its put-’em-out-to-pasture policy, allowing one of its most consistently brilliant curators to retire at age 65 (as previously discussed here).
Richard Lacayo reported yesterday in his Looking Around blog:
The Museum of Modern Art just informed its staff that John Elderfield, MoMA’s chief curator of painting and sculpture, will be stepping down in July of next year.
This will be a huge loss. Whatever Elderfield’s own wishes in this matter, MoMA should rethink a policy that forces it to pull the plug on one of its brightest lights.
Can you not be 65 and Modern?
