Along with Walburga Krupp, Eva Reifert and Natalia Sidlina, Umland is a co-curator of "Sophie Taeuber-Arp: Living Abstraction" at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The exhibition surveys Taeuber-Arp's pioneering interests in Dada and abstraction across over 300 works, including textiles, beadwork, polychrome marionettes, architectural and interior designs, stained glass windows, works on paper, paintings, and relief sculptures.  The exhibition is on view through March 12. The outstanding exhibition catalogue was published by MoMA and the Kunstmuseum Basel. Indiebound and Amazon offer it for $57-75.

Brown was one of the world's leading scholars of art of Spain and the Spanish colonial world. He died on January 17 at 82. In addition to teaching at New York University, Brown was the editor, author or co-author of about 20 books on Spanish and Latin American art. He also curated exhibitions that explored the works of Murillo, Goya, Velazquez, Rubens, Van Dyck, Ribera, and more.
