Manley Curates Chicago Exhibition

Roger Manley, director of the Gregg Museum of Art and Design, recently guest curated an exhibition for Intuit, the Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art, in Chicago.

Manley’s exhibition, Architecture of Hope: The Treasures of Intuit, kicked off a yearlong celebration of the museum’s 20th anniversary. The exhibition will be open through May 14. 

Manley, who became director of the Gregg Museum last June, served as the museum’s curator in the 1990s, when it was known as the Gallery of Art and Design.

Manley has curated more than 40 exhibitions around the world. He has received fellowships from both the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, as well as grants from the Watson Foundation, NC Arts Council, Laurie Foundation, Bunnen Foundation and Mary Duke Biddle Foundation. His feature documentary film, Mana—beyond belief, premiered at Lincoln Center in New York in 2005 and won awards at several international film festivals.
