Tuesday Evenings at the Modern: Howard Rachofsky
November 27, 2012
3200 Darnell Street , Fort Worth, TX
Howard Rachofsky is an internationally renowned collector of contemporary art living in Dallas. He began collecting in the mid-1970s, and over the past three decades has amassed a world-class collection of paintings, sculpture, video, and installation art by many of the era’s greatest artists, including Robert Irwin, Donald Judd, Anselm Kiefer, Jeff Koons, Bruce Nauman, Gerhard Richter, and Mark Rothko, among many others.
In 1996, Rachofsky opened a spacious, modernist house designed by renowned architect Richard Meier. This house, which the collector has opened to the public and for school tours, has been the focus for installing different aspects of the collection in unique ways. This fall, he will open another space (17,000 square feet) in Dallas for even larger and more ambitious installations. Rachofsky will talk about his collecting philosophy and his future plans for the collection.
