Maverick Arts - Charles Giuliano
Back in 1971, the MFA updated its Neanderthal policy toward modern art by appointing its first contemporary curator, Kenworth Moffett, who left the museum in 1984, and later served as director of the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art.And, in a dramatic turn of events, the ICA, which is planning to build a 60,000 square foot facility, recently announced that it will start a permanent collection. Considering Boston's status as a cultural and educational center, while encouraging, experts argue that this is too little and absurdly too late.With very limited resources, Moffett boldly and bravely launched a collection of contemporary art in a museum and city that was historically indifferent to this activity.The down side is that he collected with narrowly defined interest and taste.Moffett was a disciple of Clement Greenberg and Formalism.
This helped to topple Moffett
who had distanced himself from Greenberg, a very difficult man in his last years, but remained loyal to his critical positions.
as keeper of the Greenberg flame went on to promote a movement of, New New Painters.Now that those epic art wars of years past have subsided the MFA has mounted an exhibition showcasing Moffett's acquisitions.
And, while we continue to debate the influence of Formalism, clearly, Greenberg and Moffett
truly believed in the integrity of the work.

We collaborated on a couple pieces.
was there, so I met Moffett
and that started a history of exhibitions with Moffett
that went on for the next 27 years or so.
CW: There were a number of collectors involved and you'd been in the Abstract Art in New England show that Ken Moffett
talks about how when developments are made, and this development was made twenty years ago now, it takes that long for the artists to figure out what to do with it, so his
feeling is we're really just now seeing that.
CW: So, that's around the time that you're building into the New New period, the beginnings of New New Painting being shown by Ken
was at the Fort Lauderdale Museum
