Descriptive Entry
Descriptive Entry
This accession consists of records that document the exhibition research, planning, and execution activities of the Deputy Director of the National Portrait Gallery (NPG). Records also document the Deputy Director's interaction within and among the offices under her direction, as well as outside contacts and dealings. These records were created and maintained by Carolyn Kinder Carr, Deputy Director, 1991- . Among other duties, the Deputy Director serves as the Gallery's chief art historian. It is in this capacity that she curates exhibitions.
Carr came from the Akron Art Institute to the National Portrait Gallery in 1984 as the Assistant Director for Collections. When the Assistant Director for History and Public Programs left the Gallery (c. 1991), reorganization of the Gallery's upper administration took place. At that time, Carr was named Deputy Director and absorbed two programmatic responsibilities of the former Assistant Director for History and Public Programs. The service responsibilities (publications and the library) of the, now defunct, office were absorbed by the Assistant Director for Administration, later renamed the Associate Director for Administration (c. 1992).
In her capacity as Deputy Director, Carr has direct responsibility for all the Curatorial Departments (Painting and Sculpture, Prints and Drawings, and Photographs); the Department of History; Office of the Registrar; the Center for Electronic Research and Outreach; the Conservation Department; and the Department of Education.
Materials include correspondence, memoranda, slides, photographs, reports, research reference files, obituaries, press packets, typescripts of catalogs, scripts, and related material.
Four exhibition subjects mentioned in the files are noted as "canceled" and not listed in the official list of NPG exhibitions, they are: the Daguillard Collection, Oak Hill Cemetery, Uriah Levy, and Court Portraiture in the Reign of Phillip II. There is also a large group of files devoted to a proposed exhibition that was never produced, it was: Four Muses of Movement: Martha Graham.
