The Power of Contemporary Art
Smith’s first contemporary art curator, Emma Chubb, didn’t grow up around contemporary art. But when she was in 10th grade, she was “lucky enough to have an English teacher who decided to teach us about modern and contemporary art,” she says, “even though it wasn’t in the Pennsylvania state curriculum.” On a class field trip to the 1999 Carnegie International, she saw works by artists like William Kentridge, Shirin Neshat and Kara Walker. “Seeing this art was a way into a world that I didn’t know,” Chubb says. “It allowed me to travel across space and time—to see ways of picturing and ways of making that made me want to learn more.”
