Erica F. Battle is the co-curator of Dancing around the Bride: Cage, Cunningham, Johns, Rauschenberg, and Duchamp (on view October 30, 2012 through January 21, 2013), which she is organizing for the Philadelphia Museum of Art (PMA) in collaboration with Carlos Basualdo. Working in a curatorial capacity in the PMA’s Department of Modern and Contemporary Art for six years, she has organized both ongoing collection displays and major special exhibitions. There, she has curated Everyday Disturbances (2011-12), a presentation of contemporary sculpture from the 1980s to today and Forms of Contingency: New York and Turin, 1960s-1970s (2010), examining relationships between Post-Minimalism and Arte Povera. In 2009, she helped to organize the official U.S. entry to the 53rd Venice Biennale, Bruce Nauman: Topological Gardens, which garnered the Golden Lion for Best National Participation. Additional past projects at PMA include Michelangelo Pistoletto: From One to Many, 1956-1974 and Cittadellarte (2010-11), Bruce Nauman: Days and Giorni (2009), William Kentridge: Tapestries (2007-08), Kiefer Polke Richter (2007) and Marine Hugonnier: A Film Trilogy (2007).
