For two years, The Record has spun the Nasher Museum right around. The exhibition is currently winding down at the final venue, the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle, where it’s on view through October 6. We are enjoying every last revolution on the turntable, including a new review of the catalogue edited by curator Trevor Schoonmaker, in Scratched Vinyl.
The photo album of our famous visitors to “The Record” may seem pretty impressive. Even more exciting: the wonderful conversations and ideas they brought, and the notion that they went back out into the world and told lots of people about the Nasher Museum and “The Record.”
Mark Anthony Neal took a field trip recently with his production crew for “Left of Black,” a weekly webcast billed as “a contrarian view of blackness,” from their studio at Duke’s John Hope Franklin Center. They came to the Nasher Museum to film Episode No. 11, featuring Trevor Schoonmaker, Patsy R. and Raymond D. Nasher Curator of Contemporary Art, and the exhibition he organized, “The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl.”
