Tina Oldknow, Independent Curator and Art Historian, will present the Eleventh Annual Sarah Jane Hardrath Kramer Lecture at the Knoxville Museum of Art on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at 6pm.
Oldknow, who specializes in contemporary art, craft, and design in glass, will discuss “Sources of Inspiration in Contemporary Art in Glass.” She retired in 2015 from her post as senior curator of modern and contemporary glass at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York, a position she held for 15 years. During her time in Corning, Oldknow reinstalled the Modern Glass and Contemporary Glass Galleries, and oversaw the inaugural installation of the museum’s Contemporary Art + Design Wing. She has organized over 30 exhibitions in her career, and has written over 100 books, articles, and essays on glass.
