Marcia Tucker To Be Remembered at New Museum
Marcia Tucker.
NEW YORK.- Friends of the New Museum are invited to honor and remember Marcia Tucker, Founding Director of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, in a Memorial Tribute to be held on January 12, 2007 from 3-5PM. Organized by the New Museum in association with The Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School, the memorial will take place at The New School's Tishman Auditorium, 66 West 12th Street, NYC.

As Director of the New Museum from 1977-1999, Marcia Tucker organized such polemical exhibitions as Bad Painting (1978) and Bad Girls (1994), and presided over the first museum exhibitions of John Baldessari, Christian Boltanski, Barry Le Va, Ana Mendieta, Carolee Schneeman, and David Wojnorowicz. She was the series editor of Documentary Sources in Contemporary Art, influential books of theory and criticism published by the New Museum. She was Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the Whitney Museum of American Art from 1969 - 1977, where she organized solo exhibitions of Bruce Nauman, Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell and Richard Tuttle, among others. Ms. Tucker was the 1999 recipient of the Bard College Award for Curatorial Achievement, and received the Art Table Award for Distinguished Service to the Visual Arts in 2000. She was a dedicated lecturer, teacher and writer. Most recently, Ms. Tucker led a secret life as stand-up comic Mabel McNeil and her alter ego "Miss Mannerist."

The New Museum announced on December 1, 2006, that the ground floor public space of its new building at 235 Bowery, to open in late 2007, will be known in perpetuity as The Marcia Tucker Hall in her honor.
