Editorial note: This Curator Diary is an editorial feature documenting curator and local Bushwick hero Jason Andrew’s trip to Asheville, North Carolina to mount an ambitious exhibition of work by Jack Tworkov. The column will explore the day-to-day process of curating. Andrew is curating Jack Tworkov: The Accident of Choice, which opens tomorrow, June 17, at the Black Mountain College Museum & Arts Center (56 Broadway, Asheville, North Carolina) and runs until September 17, 2011.
In this final entry into Jason Andrew’s Curator Diary, the curator gives a lecture on Jack Tworkov’s life and work and wraps up his time in Asheville, making last stops at local galleries and homes of friends. The journey ends with a trip back to the airport. It’s the surreal end of a curating job — put up the exhibition, show it off, then pack up. — KC
