New director of exhibitions at Moore College


Well, he’s not all that new, given he’s been here for two months, but Brian Wallace, the new director of exhibitions at Moore College, has a while yet before his influence will be clear on what’s showing at the Goldie Paley Gallery and the Levy Gallery at Moore College.

Wallace said that besides continuing Moore’s international-art tradition, he’s interested in encouraging local emerging artists and underrecognized artists and he has an interest in art made by and influenced by new technologies.

His track record as curator at the Bellevue Museum of Art near Seattle shows that he commissioned Seattle-area artist Mary Henry to paint a temporary two-story high mural in the museum’s new building. Another example from exhibition history is work by photographer Takihito Sato, whose image here, “Minato-Ku Daiba,” 1996, a photo transparency lightbox, 39″ x 48 1/4″, was a recent acquisition of the Microsoft Collection.
