He’s been bidding at auction, so there’s nothing left for former MoMA eminence John Elderfield to do but join Gagosian to produce museum-quality shows like the Monet or Picasso events. At least, that’s one way to read Carol Vogel’s column this week:
Mr. Elderfield is joining the Gagosian Gallery, where he will be organizing museum-style exhibitions along the lines of the Picasso shows that John Richardson, Picasso’s biographer, has put together there over the last few years.
“I’ve admired many of the exhibitions that have been done at Gagosian,” Mr. Elderfield said in a telephone interview, adding it was too early to discuss specific shows he would like to organize. “Things are so different these days as the worlds of museums and galleries keep getting closer and closer.”
