Ian Berry is Associate Director for Curatorial Affairs and Curator at The Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College. He received his B.A. in Art History from the University at Albany and his M.A. from the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College. Before coming to Skidmore Ian served as Assistant Curator at the Williams College Museum of Art. A specialist in contemporary art, he has organized several exhibitions for the Tang Museum including projects that combine antique maps, scientific equipment, Rube Goldberg cartoons, and Shaker furniture with new works of international contemporary art. His recent solo artist projects at the Tang have featured artists such as Paul Henry Ramirez, Nayland Blake, Jim Hodges, and Alyson Shotz. Among his many publications, Ian is co-editor of the recent catalogue, "Kara Walker: Narratives of a Negress," co-published by MIT Press. As Lecturer in Art History, Ian teaches the seminar course, Inside the Museum, which serves as an introduction to the history, theory, and practice of the modern museum.
