Dr. Derin Tanyol is new Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art at the Hyde Collection
Dr. Derin Tanyol, a nineteenth- through twenty-first-century art specialist, has been named Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art. She will oversee The Hyde’s contemporary exhibition programming and modern art collections.
In Dr. Tanyol’s words:
“I’m an art historian, curator, and teacher, with my areas of focus ranging from nineteenth-century French painting through contemporary art.
“I’ve produced shows of both regional emerging artists and established names on the contemporary scene. And I’ll always love teaching art history; I’ve taught nineteenth- and twentieth-century art at Vassar College, Wesleyan University, and SUNY New Paltz.
Beyond the arts, I’ve been a technical rock climber for twenty-five years. I’ve climbed throughout the United States, Italy, France, and the UK, and did a three-week trek in Nepal’s Annapurna range. Being a “climbing art historian” scored me a dream workation high above the Grand Canal, constructing one of Mike and Doug Starn’s towering Big Bambú installations for the Venice Biennale. The Adirondacks are a magnet for climbers and Glens Falls is surrounded by destination climbing areas; I feel so privileged to be able to call this beautiful region home, and to work with the important modern collections at The Hyde.”

He tries to relax by watching TV, when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set and show him how to win his students over with imagination and music.
