Caught on Camera: Press Conference for 109 Obras de Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buenos Aires, Argentina
From October 23 through November 30, 1969, the Albright-Knox loaned 109 paintings to the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Buenos Aires, Argentina, for the exhibition 109 Obras de Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
On December 9, 1968, the Albright-Knox hosted a Members’ Preview for African and Afro-American Art: The Transatlantic Tradition.
We’ve dug up some photos of the famous horror film actor Vincent Price visiting the Albright-Knox on October 18, 1963.
Selected materials from the opening of the BFAA in 1862 and from early Albright Art Gallery exhibitions can be seen on our Flickr page.
The 1962 addition to the Albright Art Gallery was designed by Gordon Bunshaft, one of the most influential architects of the twentieth century. Standing in quiet contrast to the museum’s Greek Revivalist 1905 Building, Bunshaft’s modernist addition was unquestionably new and turned quite a few heads at the time of its completion.
Through the generous support of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the Albright-Knox Art Gallery has begun a two-year project that will make information about the museum’s Collection more accessible to staff, visitors, and researchers.
