European art honored by American curators

Far from getting the publicity of the Oscar competition for films, art exhibitions also have their awards in the USA, the AAMC awarded by the Association of Art Museum Curators that crowned for the 2009 season
Bauhaus, 1919-1933: Workshops for Modernity, at New York's MoMA with two prizes, best exhibition and best catalogue.

Along with Bauhaus, the award ceremony that took place on May 17 in Chicago also awarded the Outstanding Exhibition or Installation prize to Titian, Tintoretto, and Veronese: Rivals in Renaissance Venice (Museum of Fine Arts, Boston); Becoming Edvard Munch: Influence, Anxiety, and Myth (Art Institute of Chicago) and Art of Two Germanies/Cold War Cultures (LACMA, Los Angeles).

Out of one hundred nominations for prizes, the 900 curators and active members of AAMC also awarded the Outstanding Catalogue Based on a Permanent Collection to Michael R. Taylor from the Philadelphia Museum of Art for Marcel Duchamp: Etant donnés and Outstanding Exhibition Catalogue prize to Barry Bergdoll and Leah Dickerman, of the Museum of Modern Art, for Bauhaus, 1919-1933.

"Bauhaus is simply an indispensable book for anyone interested in 20th century art, design, architecture, and pedagogy", said Constance Lewallen, Adjunct Curator at the Berkeley Art Museum and AAMC Exhibition Catalogue Jury Chair, during the award ceremony.

Titian, Tintoretto, and Veronese: Rivals in Renaissance Venice was seen by 175.000 visitors in Boston's Museum of Fine Arts and by another 400.000 visitors in the Paris Louvre, while 110.000 people visited the Munch exhibition in Chicago.

For those who haven't had the chance to see these exhibits, the internet provides virtual visits:
