About the exhibit
The Gifts of Tony Podesta
Curated by Klaus Ottmann and Jennifer Sakai
January 26-March 17, 2019
This first major exhibition, drawn from the American University Museum’s Corcoran Legacy Collection, features strong, provocative photography and sculpture donated by Tony Podesta over the past decade to the Corcoran Gallery of Art, now part of the American University Museum’s holdings. Podesta has earned the reputation of being a fearless supporter of challenging contemporary art by women. He is an important patron of the arts nationally and internationally, with an outsized impact across the Washington art world.
