Overview

This collection of short stories by groundbreaking curator and author Marcia Tucker--who died in 2006 at the age of 66--was produced during her many residencies at The Acadia Summer Arts Program in Maine. Tucker was the founder of New York's New Museum of Contemporary Art, where she served as Director from its inception in 1977 until 1999. Her motto, "Act first, think later--that way you'll have something to think about," was a guiding principle in running the institution, where she organized such major exhibitions as A Labor of Love (1996) and Bad Girls (1994). After resigning from her post in 1999, Tucker continued to write, teach, lecture--and perform occasional stand-up comedy. Upon her death, Lisa Phillips, the current Director of the New Museum wrote, "In her life and in her work, which were very intertwined, she was a kind of magnet who understood the power of people and brought them together around shared passions. She was and still is a force to be reckoned with."
