Biographical/Historical Note

Marcia Tucker (1940-2006), American curator, art critic and museum director, studied art and art history at Connecticut College (B.A.) and New York University (M.A.) where she worked with Robert Goldwater. Starting out as an artist, she wrote reviews for art magazines, and cataloged and curated the private collections of Alfred and Margo Barr, and of William and Noma Copley. Finding she preferred the role of art interpreter and presenter, she accepted a position as curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art, where she soon distinguished herself as an innovator and advocate for the underrepresented American artists residing outside New York City, as well as for women artists, African American artists, folk artists, and other sorts of "outsiders." Insisting that the criteria for exhibiting contemporary art should never be those of the connoisseur, Tucker selected work that challenged, disturbed, and resisted interpretation. For this she was roundly criticized but not deterred from what she later called "a career built on bad reviews." Frequently traveling around the country and especially to California for studio visits, she developed friendships with artists whose work she exhibited, such as Terry Allen, John Baldessari, and Bruce Nauman. These unconventionally close relationships, and what is now seen as her groundbreaking exhibition on Richard Tuttle, possibly contributed to her being fired from the Whitney.
In response, Tucker founded the first museum of contemporary art in New York, the New Museum. Working on a shoestring budget and with a small staff of like-minded individuals, Tucker experimented with presenting exhibitions that openly flaunted traditional art historical standards, such as Bad Painting (1978). At the same time, the museum was to be run as differently as possible from the hierarchical Whitney: all decisions were made collectively and by consensus. The challenges of maintaining this approach as the institution grew in size and budget made the New Museum, among other things, a laboratory for institutional innovation. The Museum soon acquired powerful supporters in Henry Luce III and Vera List, who helped to guide the institution toward greater financial stability. The museum's program continued to be focussed on the underrepresented, and perhaps less on the avant-garde per se. Among major exhibitions were the following: The Decade show (1984), Living Paintings (1988), Strange Attractors: Signs of Chaos (1989), Bad Girls (1994), and The Time of Our Lives (1999). Tucker retired in 2000 and died in 2006.

Scope and Content of Collection

The collection documents Marcia Tucker's uniquely intertwined personal and professional activity from the beginning of her work as a curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1968 through her retirement from the Founding Directorship of the New Museum in 2000. Museum files from the Whitney, comprising acquisitions, studio visits, interoffice memos, and minutes of meetings, reflect the institutional practices and aesthetic standards that Tucker ebulliently questioned. Her firing from the Whitney is portrayed in correspondence and clippings, as is her subsequent creation of an experimental institution, the New Museum. The evolution of Tucker's prescient, influential ideas about contemporary art, art exhibition, and museum management is evident in exhibition files, writings, lectures, and in her collection of writings by others.
Correspondence reveals her close connection with artists throughout the U.S., and her exceptional capacity to inspire and relate to various types of people. There are relatively large files of letters from the artists Nicholas Africano, Terry Allen, John Baldessari, Bruce Nauman, Pat Steir, Jack Tworkov and Ree Morton. There is also a good amount of correspondence with Henry Luce III, whose support was critical to the New Museum's success. From the period prior to Tucker's term at the Whitney are letters from employers Margo Barr and William and Noma Copley, and a file of letters from Tucker's first husband, Michael Tucker.
