As I write this column, it is summer in Chicago;
hot and humid one day, cool and rainy the next. I
hope you all enjoyed relaxing and fun summers. If
you went on any great vacations, I’d love to hear
about them!
In a brief update to the Alumni Office,
Alexandra
Ballard
wrote, “I’ve returned to Canada after 20
years in Australia and am living in Vancouver with
my 17-year-old daughter.”That is just a teaser; let us
hear more about what you’re up to inVancouver.
A press release from the Museum of Modern
Art in New York announces the appointment of
David Platzker
as a curator in the Department
of Prints and Illustrated Books. “Platzker, widely
known for his expertise in artists’ books, mul-
tiples, and ephemera of the post-1960 period,
will work closely with Chief Curator Christophe
Cherix, participating in the curatorial program,
including exhibitions, special projects, and ac-
quisition initiatives,” the release stated. He was a
curator there from 1989 to 1998, producing the
catalogue raisonné
Claes Oldenburg: Multiples in
Retrospect 1964–1990
and curating the exhibition
of the same name, which traveled to various in-
stitutions across Europe between 1992 and 1997.
From 1998 to 2004, he was executive director
of the non-profit bookstore Printed Matter, and
from 2004 to 2008 he was project director for
Art Spaces Archives Project (AS-AP), New York,
a non-profit research initiative dedicated to the
documentation and preservation of the archives
of alternative art spaces nationwide.”Next, he was
president of Specific Object, a curatorial project
and bookstore that he founded in 2004 with a
specialized inventory in Pop, Minimal and Con-
ceptual artists’publications and artworks.
David toldme he’s beenmarried to Susan Inglett,
an art dealer/gallery owner. We’ve got a 13-year-
old daughter and we live in SoHo.”Over the years,
David has been in touch with
Vivian Dwyer
,
Di-
ana Stratton-Crooke,
Michele Foster Swatek ’88,
Steve Amick ’86, ElizabethWyckoff ’81 and emeri-
tus art professor Guy Berard. Congratulations to
David, on the wonderful new opportunity!
I often miss Denver so I especially enjoy hear-
ing what
Scott Forbes
is up to. Scott sees
Chris
Howes
fairly often and
John Fields
from time to
time. Scott and Chris skied last winter at Vail and
enjoyed the great skiing, food, drink and cigars. I
guess some things never change!
Scott also reported seeing
Sam Hovey
at a
St. Lawrence event. And
Cathy Hallett DeLoren-
zo
andMolly ReamsThompson ’86were inDenver
for two different business-related conventions at
the same time last October, andmet upwith Scott.
It sure sounds as though a lot of our classmates
get to Denver. I'm thinking we should plan some
sort of ski/reunion trip there soon.
