This accession consists of materials documenting the research and correspondence of Judith Zilczer. Zilczer was employed by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in various capacities from 1974-2003, ultimately serving as Curator of Paintings from 1992-2003. Many of the files were compiled while Zilczer was co-curating the exhibition "Visual Music: 1905-2005" which was presented in 2005 at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angles, and, later that year, at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. A few files document the development of and responses to the exhibition. Other files document Zilczer's research concerning Arthur Garfield Dove, Robert Coady, John Quinn, Raymond Duchamp-Villon, early modernism, and Arthur B. Davies as well as her early research into visual music. Materials include correspondence; photocopies of articles and primary sources; clippings; images of artwork; exhibition proposals; lecture scripts; manuscripts; notes; and related materials. Some materials are in electronic format.
