A veteran museum curator, Michael Auping is best known today as a curator of ambitious thematic and monographic exhibitions—often focused on the work of mid-to-late 20th-century painters. Back in 1982, he curated Common Ground (1982), which pitted the sensibilities of artists working in and with the landscape—Hamish Fulton and Alan Sonfist among them—against their more aggressive Earth Art colleagues. Auping is currently the chief curator at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and he served as a Center panelist in exhibitions in 2013.
