Apothecarium Moderne

Rosetta DeBerardinis: Tim, you have work currently in a major museum show along with Damien Hirst, I read the review. What is your impression of the show?

Tim Tate: The show is a very non-Washington show. It tests the limits of media specific work, and allows artist who normally would be outside the museum system to show work. I would say its one of the most exciting shows in NYC right now.

Rosetta DeBerardinis: You mentioned during our last chat that you were discovered by the curator at the Museum of Art and Design on Facebook. What did his initial correspondence say?

Tim Tate: The way I got the show at the Museum Of Arts and Design in NYC is through Facebook. I posted a video of a cat playing the piano, and a person popped up and said, “Hey! That’s really cute…. I should have that at my museum.” I said “museum???? You should have my work….. what museum??” That man was David McFadden, Chief Curator at the Museum of Arts and Design. I pitched a concept and 24 hours later, I was in a show there.

Rosetta DeBerardinis: What was your pitch?

Tim Tate: It was called “The Apothecarium Moderne.” It consists of 9 large apothecary jars, each offering a cure for an ill of modern mankind. I sent him a sketch of the piece.
