Jerry Gorovoy, curator and longtime assistant of renowned sculptor Louise Bourgeois, has been accused of rape in a lawsuit filed by one of Bourgeois’ former archivists, the Daily Beast reported Wednesday.

The lawsuit, filed in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, accuses Gorovoy, 69, of grooming and financially and sexually abusing Blair David Hines (who goes by David) between December 2000 and June 2002. Hines, who was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, was then a “socially-inexperienced aspiring artist,” with “minimal connections to New York City and no connection to anyone in the City’s insular art world,” the lawsuit states.

Curator Yung Ma on Making “Impossible” Exhibitions Into Realities

Published

In less than three years since he joined Hayward Gallery as curator, Yung Ma has achieved what some of his peers could only dream of. Together with his team at the London institution, Ma successfully brought Mike Nelson’s complex, large-scale immersive installations to life in the breathtaking survey of the British artist’s oeuvre last year, a task that was widely seen as mission impossible. The show impressed some of the U.K.’s toughest critics, and was embraced by the public—tickets were sold out and long queues were spotted at the gallery.

Ma has made a name for himself as a curator who pushes the boundaries of what an exhibition can be, particularly when it comes to challenging conceptual work and the significance of film and video. While associate curator of moving image at M+ in Hong Kong he made significant developments within the collection, and also co-curated the city’s 2013 exhibition in Venice, a collateral event of the Venice Biennale. “You (you),” a solo exhibition by Lee Kit, Hong Kong’s rising star at the time, delighted critics and crowds alike with a sparse, minimalistic, but emotionally intimate installation comprised of mundane objects, moving images, sound, and paintings. It signified a shift in what Hong Kong contemporary art could be, particularly when presented on an international stage.

This summer an exhibition curated by The Courtauld’s MA Curating the Art Museum students will open at The Courtauld Gallery.

The Courtauld’s students are creating a compelling and exciting exhibition by bringing together Post Impressionist paintings and prints from our collection with contemporary works from the David and Indré Roberts Collection. The result promises to be an exhibition that encourages us to find thought-provoking and unexpected connections between artworks that span more than a century. All the artists represented explore new ways of depicting their own experiences of nightlife, entertainment, and spectacle, often playing with the strange effects of light after nightfall. We are delighted that Good Morning, Midnight has been such a fruitful collaboration with the Roberts Institute of Art.
