New gallery artist Jean Shin now has work featured in the permanent collection of the Rose Art Museum (MA). The acquisition of Shin’s 2009 installation piece, “Alterations,” was part of a major donation of forty-one works by collector, computer programmer, and philanthropist Peter Norton. Says ArtForum:
Drawn from Norton’s personal collection, this gift is part of a series of donations to university art museums and teaching museums throughout the country, including the Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore, Saratoga Springs, New York; UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley, California; and the Mary & Leigh Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois.
The gift to the Rose includes video, photography, painting, prints, sculpture, and mixed media works by artists such as Doug Aitken, Nicole Eisenman, Omer Fast, Robert Gober, Mike Kelley, Jean Shin, Kara Walker, and Christopher Wool, among others.
We congratulate Jean on this major milestone, and encourage you to visit the Rose Art Museum if you find yourself on the Brandeis University campus (on which the museum is housed). For more information about the artist or available work, please email email@example.com
